How to Make Healthy Tomato Salsa

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine the first seven ingredients and the mango, if using. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate. Just before serving, garnish with the cilantro.

    The "heat" from the jalapeño is from the seeds and the rib. Remove completely for almost no heat or adjust removal of seeds and ribs according to your spicy preferences.
