Cooking Classics: Salsa Fresca

The Technique

Salsa Fresca

It is the fresh flavor from extras such as Salsa Fresca that give classic Mexican egg dishes, tacos, burritos, flautas, quesadillas, tortilla chips & more the boost they need in order to truly shine. Roma tomatoes, onion, fresh peppers, citrus & herbs can be chopped by hand quickly to make this stellar blend. The seeds & the juice from the tomatoes remain in this version & the longer the mixture stands the better the flavor becomes. Learn how to make a traditional accompaniment you’ll reach for time & time again in your very own kitchen.

How To Make Salsa Fresca

Salsa Fresca relies on fresh produce to deliver the perky flavor classic Mexican dishes deserve. A citrus reamer may be used to retrieve the lime juice necessary in order to make the recipe while a utility knife slices through tough tomato skins with ease. Look for them from fine cook stores & super centers or try a quick internet search.

Chopping, dicing & mincing are the basic fundamentals necessary in order to prepare a batch of Salsa Fresca. Honing your knife skills just takes a bit of practice, however the final dishes will truly appear neat & orderly making for a beautiful presentation. For pointers & visuals on how to mince hot peppers, look to The Basics: Serrano Peppers while a chef knife may be used to chop the cilantro leaves. You’re not looking for a consistent size here where as dicing should be similar so take a little more care when working with the tomatoes & the onions.
