The beauty of this recipe also lies in its simplicity. It’s a straightforward, no-cook dish that requires just a bit of dicing and stirring. The ingredients are easily accessible and the preparation method is uncomplicated, making it a perfect recipe for kitchen novices and busy home cooks alike. After combining all the ingredients, a brief resting period allows the flavors to marry, creating a salsa that’s greater than the sum of its parts.

Jalapeños are used to bring the heat. It’s a mild to low-medium heat that most everyone can enjoy. Want more? Serrano peppers work just as well, too.
