Easy and so delicious! Tastier and fresher than store bought. No preservatives but lasts in the fridge a long time. You control the heat and the sodium. Fat free, low calorie and vegan too!

Very good! I made this as written, except I only used 1 jalapeno and no hot sauce. That 1 jalapeno was plenty - equivalent to 'medium' store bought salsa. I prefer a spicier salsa, but no one else in the family does. The parsley however, is overpowering. 1/4 cup is too much (and I like parsley!). Next time I'll only use one sprig, if at all. I think I'll try lemon juice instead of lime next time, lemon seems to 'lift' flavours better. EDITED TO ADD: I had to throw this out. The parsley flavour got so intense it was completely overpowering. The tomato and onion flavours also were strange - instead of 'fresh', this just tasted raw to me. Perhaps I'll try this again but I'll simmer everything for a bit first, to remove the raw flavour.
