I'd recommend to make the salsa the day before and let sit overnight. This allows the flavors do develop properly.
Prior to serving drizzle a little lemon juice over the salsa. This gives the extra kick!
I like my salsa chunky but if you are a member of the creamy fraction you can mash the salsa once completely cooled.
This recipe is vegan, paleo, gluten-free and super easy and yummy.
