Homemade Salsa

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Small Town Cook

My husband had been buying some salsa from the store at $4.99 per container. So I purchased ingredients that was listed on the label, and made my own. It took a few tries but this worked best for our tastes. I had to list an amount for the cilantro, but I just grabbed about 1/2 a bunch (probably made 1/4-1/2 cup), chopped it and added it. It's also best if it's refrigerated for at least 1 hr so the flavors can blend.

Do the onions soften up in the jar? I don't like crunchy onions. Thanks for the recipe :)
