Tips and Tricks:

  • If you like it spicier, you can keep some of the seeds from the jalapeno peppers or add more red jalapeno peppers. Conversely, if you prefer a milder taste, you can skip the jalapeno peppers altogether or reduce the amount.
  • If cilantro isn’t your favorite herb, you can substitute it with chopped fresh parsley or basil for a different flavor profile.
  • Allow the salad to sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to meld together. This will enhance the overall taste of the dish.
