Why just open a jar, when it is so easy and quick to make fresh? Originally from a vegetarian cookbook, then I made it my own with a few additions.

I made this when I needed some salsa to add to a different recipe. It was easy and quick to make with ingredients I had, but I wouldn't make this to serve as plain salsa. It was relativly runny and the onion taste was quite strong. However, it is a convenient recipe to have and I could adapt it more to my taste.

Excellent! I used canned diced tomatoes and fresh cilantro and instead of the cayenne pepper used sambal oelek, (hot red pepper condiment). Other than that small change I followed the recipe. I refrigerated it for a few hours, and it tasted really fresh! I did not puree, as my family prefer chunky salsa. My salsa was not hot at all, which satisfied us.
