I think I inherited my dad’s salsa gene. We both make salsas that pack a punch when it comes to flavor and somehow seem to go well on top of…anything. However, my dad, unlike me, has knife skills like a ninja. So after I took my first knife skills class, the first thing I did when I got home was make a salsa — it’s the best way to practice uniform dicing and the results are delicious. Now, I’ve done it so many times, I’ve got the recipe — and the knife skills — down to a science. So please enjoy…

1 small red bell pepper, finely diced
1 or 2 jalepenos, finely diced (and de-seeded, depending on spice level desired)
juice of 2 limes

1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/4 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
Combine all the ingredients into a large bowl.
Taste, adding additional lime, vinegar, or sugar as needed.
