I know it is only the third of May, but why not begin your Cinco de Mayo festivities tonight! Today's Fancy Friday encourages you to cook a Mexican inspired meal this weekend. Why? Because even though Cinco de Mayo is mostly celebrated in the US, what day ISNT'T good for a Mexican fiesta? Say goodbye to that Old El Paso salsa, and make some of your own Salsa Fresca instead.
Tomatos - diced (I like grape or cherry best)
Red Onion - diced small
Jalapeño - seeded, finely chopped
Fresh Cilantro - cut small (I usually cut a bunch with scissors)
Garlic - one clove minced
Lime - squeezed
Add a good balance of ingredients, and mix with fresh lime juice.
