In our family, specifically my side, salsa is a staple everyone has to have. Well, if I’m being honest picante sauce is the actual staple but we’ve topped it! This recipe is perfect for those that love our beloved staple, I promise! It’s also a fantastic recipe to easily multiply so that you can can salsa for when the garden is out of season!
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.
Monkey’s Original Salsa Recipe: Salsa de Mona
- 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!
This is one of those recipes that gets better as it sits, so if you want to make it a day or two ahead of time then go for it! The flavor will be even more amazing!

If you are looking for something to go with a Cinco de Mayo theme (or just a Mexican dinner), you should certainly try the Tamarindo recipe!
Another fantastic garden recipe we have posted is the Garden Fresh Corn Salad! That one is even low fat! Bonus!
*Note* Admittedly, my original image was not all that fantastic. Much better seeing it in person. I blame the ‘new blogger’ learning curve. So, for the updated image (with the basket and garden ingredients), I borrowed an Image by Wokandapix from Pixabay.
