Description

It’s like a mix between salsa (duh), a vinaigrette, and a marinade, but all in one. You can use it to spruce up black beans or rice, smear it on meat (veggies or tofu) and grill it, slather it on said proteins and bake as is … I mean I can go on and on. Eat it with tortilla chips or dip quesadillas in it!

You get the point. Make this stuff, honestly. Make and eat and enjoy and dance and sing.

Ingredients

  • ¼ whole Small Sweet Fresh Onion
  • 1 clove Fresh Garlic
  • 1 pint Fresh Organic Grape Or Cherry Tomatoes, Washed And Dried
  • 3 whole Fresh Limes, Juiced
  • 3 Tablespoons Good Quality Olive Oil
  • 1 cup Fresh Cilantro Leaves- Just Grab A Bunch And Twist Off Of Stems (some Stems Ok)
  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 1 pinch Red Chile Flakes (depending On How Hot You Like Things)

Preparation

Makes about 2 cups.

1. First things, first. Make sure any and all produce is washed and dried.

2. In a food processor, add onion and garlic. Process about 15 seconds, stop, scrape down, and process again.

3. Next, add tomatoes, lime juice, olive oil, cilantro, salt, honey, and chile flakes. Process 1-2 minutes, or until everything is thoroughly combined.

4. Like stated earlier, you can rub this over meat, veggies, tofu, or fish and allow to marinate a few hours, in the fridge. Once you’re ready, you can either bake as is, or lightly brush off and grill away!

Save some and store for dipping later on!

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Also great spooned into black beans or brown rice, or eaten with freshly made tortilla chips!
