  • 1 Garlic Clove, peeled

  • 1/3 Cup Fresh Cilantro or Parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1 Large Onion, quartered
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Lime Juice (or vinegar)

Dice the remaining tomato and onion into 1/4" pieces and add to the bowl. Taste and season with lime juice (or vinegar) and salt. Mix well.

Step 4

Serve with tortilla chips or tostadas.
