"elmer's" Summertime Sweet Onion Salsa

READY IN: 21mins
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.
