Forget store-bought salsa and with a few simple steps make your own tasty Salsa Fresca! This is a party favorite to be enjoyed as a dip with chips. It is also a great condiment to have on hand, it ends up being great on tacos, nachos, burritos, grilled chicken… and so on.

1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
