This is a Mexican-inspired salad which is an all-time favorite of ours. Its quick and simple to make and most often you will find all the ingredients at home, except of course jalapeño peppers.
If you don’t have jalapeños, use any hot green chilies.
2 firm red tomatoes
2 jalapeño peppers
1 medium red onion
1 medium cucumber
Juice of one lime
Handful of cilantro/coriander
1 teaspoon cumin powder
Half teaspoon black pepper powder
Mix everything in a large bowl. Toss in the spices and seasoning and add freshly squeezed lime juice.
If you are making this salad to serve later, do not add salt. Add it just before you serve. Its best to serve this salad chilled.
