- 1 jalapeno, finely chopped (remove the seeds to keep the heat down)
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 1 TBSP lime juice
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup chopped green onions
- Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.

This salsa keeps in the refrigerator for a few days. Drain any excess liquid from the salsa before using.
