It seems that we end up eating tacos quite often. Usually once a week at least. Sometimes it's just regular tacos with ground beef. Other times it's pork or chicken. Regardless of what type of filling our tacos have I always like to have something fresh to go with them, so generally we have tacos on Thursday nights because the Farmer's Market is Thursday morning. I will make guacamole, pico de gallo, or salsa depending on what I can get that looks good that particular week.
Well this past week sucked for produce. In Florida we're at that in between stage. The farms in GA are just about done and nothing here has started producing yet. Grrrrr. I was able to get some nice cilantro but the tomatoes were crap.
So what was I going to do for tacos tonight? Then I remembered a delicious condiment type thing we had when we were in Cozumel that came with the carnitas. I think I did a pretty close re-creation and Tony loved it...
Cilantro and Onion Salsa
1 red or white onion, diced
1 bunch of cilantro, picked and rough chopped
1 jalapeno, small diced (more or less depending on the heat you want)
juice of 1 lime
1 tsp garlic powder
salt to taste
Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
Cover and refridgerate for about 2 hours to allow the flavors to meld.
Serve with any type of tacos, nachos, or with chips.
