Recipe by teresas
Picked up this recipe at a local "Elmer's" restaurant. It sounds so good and easy to prepare. They were giving out the recipe free so I guess it's OK to post here. I haven't tried it yet, but the card said: It takes only minutes to produce the best-tasting summer salsa ready for dipping, topping, and summertime fun. Cooking time includes standing time.

What a nice salsa. I'm not familiar with Elmer's, but I'll keep an eye out for it. We really enjoyed this fresh tasting salsa with chips and also over some scrambled eggs. Thanks for sharing, Teresa. Made for FYC tag.
- 4 large plum tomatoes, cored, seeded and cut into 1/2 inch dice (about 1 3/4 cups)
- 1 jalapeno, seeds and ribs removed, minced
- 2 green onions, including green tops, cut into thin slices
- 3⁄4 cup onion, sweet Walla Walla, diced (I think any sweet onion would work)
- 1⁄2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic, minced
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground coriander
