Onion, Cilantro and Lime Juice Relish
This is such a great addition to tacos or any Mexican dish. The lime juice mellows the strength of the onions & the cilantro adds a great flavor. It’s has a wonderful crunchy texture and adds a nice depth of flavors to any taco or burrito. Enjoy.
Onion, Cilantro, and Lime Juice Relish:
- 1-2 sweet yellow onions, diced
- 1 handful of cilantro, chopped
- 2-3 limes juiced
Dice onion into small pieces. Clean & chop cilantro. I use some stems (not many) because they have great flavor. Add lime juice & stir. I let it sit for a few hours to marinate the flavors. It is delicious – especially on Carne Asada Tacos!

Hi there – I came from Tastespotting. This is going to sound goofy, but I think our blogs are friends! If you look at mine you’ll see why (similar colors, for one…)
anyway, I love that onion/cilantro thing on carnitas. I started making it after eating it at taquerias (and after trying to make a pico de gallo and realizing I had no tomatoes).
Having a taco party so made the relish. I normally don’t eat raw onions but tried it and it was wonderful will make it often
This looks great. Do you think it would work if I cooked the onions a bit to get them a bit more caramelized then added the cilantro and lime?
You can certainly try it and see how it turns out. I would cool down the onions completely before mixing them with the cilantro.
I will say, the reason this relish is so delicious is the fresh crunch of the onions. The lime juice mellows their flavor and it’s really wonderful raw & fresh.
