Lacto fermentation infuses it with probiotics so here are a few extra instructions for boosting the nutritional profile of the salsa. If you’re going to use the salsa within a few days – add 2 Tbsp whey in the salsa and set out on the counter for about 8 hours or overnight. Chill and enjoy. If you plan on keeping this in cold storage for some time – up the sea salt to about 1 Tbsp and add in 4 Tbsp of whey. Let sit out for at least 24 hours, up to 48 hours. Chill and store.
