      This is a really good recipe for a basic salsa. The reason this is only four stars is the canned ingredients part. After some tweaking, it is a perfect shiny Five Stars! First, I process cilantro (about one cup of leaves does it for me) and 3 cloves of garlic, then add the two serrano peppers and onion. The last to be added are the tomatoes. I use one or two tomatoes (always on the vine) instead of the canned step - so a total of 3-4 tomatoes. Vinegar and salt are at the end, and mostly by the taste (as garlic, onion and tomatoes will always have slightly different flavor). DH doesn't like jalapeno, and 2 serrano give plenty of heat, so I never tried with that. Overall, highly recommended and will beat any store-bought salsa!!
