  • 3 lime peels, finely grated

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 tsp Serrano chili, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro or a mixture of fresh mint and basil, finely chopped

These salsas use fruits, acids, herbs, onions, and chiles.  These recipes can easily be altered by the fruit, combinations of citrus (or a bit of vinegar), herb or mixture of herbs, and type of onion or chili.
