Avocados are aplenty and it’s too hot to cook.  Time to bring out my favorite salsa!  I look forward to it each year.  It’s  fast, easy and full of flavor.

Beans & Yoga’s Salsa Cruda

1/4 – 1/2 cup chopped onion (about 1/4 onion)

3/4 – 1 cup chopped tomato (1 hothouse tomato or 1/2 beefsteak tomato)

1/4 – 1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Juice of one large lime or 2 small limes

Salt to taste

Mix all ingredients, tossing well.  Start with a little salt and keep adding until you get the flavor you like.  It might seem as if you’re adding a lot of salt, but remember, it’s not like you’re adding salt to alread salty processed food.  You might need up to a 1/4 teaspoon.

Serve with corn chips, re-fried beans, scrambled eggs, or with tortillas and melted cheese.  Keep refrigerated.
