There are numerous and plentiful recipes for salsa. . .mebbe you can all donate your favorites for us to try this year. I'll start with a fairly basic recipe.
2 cups coarsely seeded & chopped tomatoes
2 green onions (with tops), sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 to 2 tsp. Seeded & minced jalapeno or Serrano pepper
1 Tbsp. Olive oil (or veggie oil)
2 to 3 tsp. Lime juice
8 to 10 sprigs fresh cilantro, minced (optional, some people don’t like cilantro)
½ tsp salt, or to taste
½ tsp sugar, or to taste
¼ tsp black pepper
Combine the tomatoes, onions, garlic, pepper, oil and lime juice in a medium bowl.
Stir in the cilantro, if you are using it. Season the mixture with salt, sugar & pepper. Adjust the seasonings to taste, adding lime juice or chili pepper, if desired.
