  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced
  • 1 medium green pepper, diced
  • 1-2 jalepeños, diced

  • Lemon and lime juice to taste
  • One of the following:
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 1-2 teaspoons salt and ¼ cup whey
    • 1-2 teaspoons salt and ¼ cup water kefir

  1. Mix all the ingredients together including the salt, whey, or finished kefir. 
  2. Place the salsa in a fermentation container, pressing down to release some liquid. Ideally the vegetables should be submerged under the liquid. Add a bit of extra water if needed.
