Salsa de Mono Recipe: Monkeys Original Salsa Recipe


If you are a mom, you know the sense of pride that comes when your child does something on their own.  Monkey has gone away and isn’t close by anymore.  Though she doesn’t live close by, there are things she needs from time to time and I still love my Monkey.  When she made the recipe below, she was very excited and proud of herself.  I’m proud of the little things too.  My fervent prayer, as is probably everyone’s for their children, is that Monkey will succeed and be self sufficient well enough to be comfortable and happy.  Below is the recipe that she came up with on her own.  I am so proud to be sharing a Monkey original recipe, hence the name: Salsa de Mono.


3 medium tomatoes, finely chopped

1 small onion, diced

2 sm jalepenos, diced with 1/2 the seeds set aside

1 tbsp fresh cilantro, minced

1/2 tsp minced garlic

Lime juice to flavor


If you’d like it to be mild, try leaving out the jalepeno seeds but if you’d like it to be hotter, add more.  Prepare all ingredients then combine in a bowl.  Mix well.  Adjust seasonings to taste.  Enjoy!
