"My family loves the salsa from Carlos O'Kelly's. This is as close as I can come and it is delicious! You can add anything to this salsa, we've added different peppers or more garlic. It's always good."

  1. Mix tomatoes, scallions, garlic, and jalapeno pepper together in a bowl. Drizzle lime juice over mixture and add cilantro, onion salt, and salt; mix well.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • This salsa will be much better the next day. If you refrigerate overnight, it will bring out the flavors.
  • If you don't like spicy salsa, don't even use 2 sliced jalapenos. I find the longer the salsa sits, the hotter it gets with just 2 little slices.

A great refreshing salsa that pairs well with chips or as a topping for Mexican food. Made exactly as written. No need for changes.
