Last night at my children's open house, there was a bowl of FANTASTIC salsa. I tracked down the women who brought it (hoping to get the recipe) and she said that she got it from a local restaurant. Darn!

Does anyone have a fantastic recipe?

Thanks!

Best Easy Salsa (I haven't tried it yet, actually)

Ingredients:

1 can of Del Monte Fresh Cut peeled diced tomatoes

1 fresh bunch of cilantro

2 or three jalapeno peppers

one onion

one garlic clove

Directions:

You can make this recipe under 15 min, just have all the ingredients ready. Dice the tomatoes into smaller pieces. Keep juice. Mince the leaves of the cilantro bunch (use the whole thing). Chop one medium size onion coarsly. Chop the jalapeno pepper fine (can use more to taste). Add 1 small garlic clove chopped very very fine. Salt and pepper to taste. Mix all ingredients together- refrigarate for one hour.

You will LOVE this salsa = enjoy!

Serves: 10 to 12

Preparation time: 15 mn

my salsa...both the short and the long version..long version:

several ripe, fresh tomatos

green or white onion

fresh garlic, lots of it

can of diced chili peppers 4 oz

fresh cilantro

lime juice

fresh ground black pepper

you can chop this finely by hand or use a food processer

short version

several ripe fresh tomatos

dried onions

dried garlic

can of diced chili peppers 4 oz

dried cilantro

lime juice in a bottle

black pepper

of course the first recipie is better, but the second is good when you don't have fresh as for measurements, I make what I think will get eaten...usually 3-4 tomatoes, one onion, and about half a buch of fresh cilantro,

the rest I just season to taste..keep tasting till it is good..lol

MMMMMM....salsa


My favorite recipe

1 can diced tomatoes in juice (NOT "in tomato puree")

1-2 Jalapeno peppers

1/2 onion chopped somewhat finely

juice of 1 lime (give or take)

some cilantro (maybe a tablespoon or so)

some minced garlic (2-3 cloves worth)

a bit of cumin (prolly about 1 tsp or so)

very little salt

very little pepper

Put tomatoes, jalapenos, onion in bowl. Stir. Add spices. Stir. Taste and adjust seasonings.

I rarely measure anything so the amounts aren't exactly accurate but like Lorelei's recipe, "season to taste and keep tasting 'till it's good".

Sometimes, if my salsa's a little too mild, I add a half teaspoon or so of El Pato and it brings it right where I want it.

I like pico de gallo best. I like the freshness of it.

2 large tomatoes, diced fine

1 onion, diced fine

as much fresh chopped cilantro as you like

sometimes I add a jalapeno

Mix, let sit about an hour to mingle flavors. Serve with chips!!
