Hard to get more simple than this salad, Richard’s new favorite. Contains, Sliced tomatoes, sliced sweet onions. 1/2 cup of Super feet Crispy canned corn, sprinkle of chopped cilantro and some bottled spicy ranch dressing. Goes together quick quick and a lip smacking lunch!
When the tomatoes are perfection and the local Texas sweet onions crispy and delicious, they only need a dab of spice and salt to be a flavor that can be so addictive that you just keep coming back to the bowl for more. Look how intensely red this is!
I like to hand chop this. I know, it takes more time but this is so simple, and I want the tomato and onion and jalapeno pieces to all be perfect tiny squares.
The proportions are to your taste but I like this–
- 5 large dead ripe tomatoes,
- 1 jumbo sweet onion ,
- 2 green jalapeños.
- 1 large bunch of fresh cilantro and the
- juice of 3-4 limes.
- add garlic salt and other spices to taste (or one VeggyMart Salsa/Pico Seasoning packet)
Hand chop the onions, tomatoes and jalapeño ( make the pepper tinier and remove the stem and seeds). Chop the cilantro and juice the limes. Start with three limes and the fourth if it need more tartness.Throw it all in a bowl. sprinkle liberally with garlic salt.
This is only as good as the summer tomatoes and onions. This is still an ok recipe in the fall, but not as addictive as this week. Try to get the farmers at the farmers market to let you taste the tomatoes and get whichever tastes sweetest.
