"elmer's" Summertime Sweet Onion Salsa

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 1 min

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.

Excellent. We prefer the hand chopped salsas over the "pulverized in the food processor" types. They always seem to taste fresher. This one did not disappoint. The only change I would make is adding more lime juice.

Quick and so delicious! I made this with all lime juice, otherwise as directed. From our garden we have so many tomatoes, jalapenos, sarannos, & onions that I will be making a large batch for canning this week. I needed a good recipe, and this one passed by all of us. Love the use of cumin and corriander. Thanks for a keeper recipe!
