Salsa Criolla – A Peruvian Condiment That Should Be a Staple in Your Fridge

Salsa Criolla is a Peruvian condiment that may become a staple in your fridge. In fact, I plan to start a new trend.

*Salsa Criolla is the new ketchup. Pass it on. *

There are many variations of this dish that include aji or jalapeno peppers, but here I make a milder version – sort of a beginner’s guide to Salsa Criolla.

What makes this dish so special is the use of fresh lime juice which gives the onions a fantastic flavor. Although you can eat it right away, I like the way it tastes after marinating. The salsa can be served with grilled meats, seafood dishes, rice, or on toast. I know it would be delicious on sandwiches.

Ingredients

  • 1 large red onion, sliced paper thin
  • ½ cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon vinegar (any white vinegar will do)
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • Sea salt (to taste but I used probably ¼ teaspoon)
