Salsa Perfecto

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by melewen

A totally delicious salsa recipe that combines fresh ingredients with cooked tomatoes that gives it a fresh but very salsa-y taste. I've finally gotten the ingredients down to exact measurements! I'm required by my [extended] family to keep at least half a gallon in my house at all times. Goes great with cheese dip, on tacos, in soups, whatever! In Paris, I made this all the time, and my friends would literally drink it. Out of wine glasses. Maybe they just missed Mexican food, but I'm thinking it's because the recipe is so good!

Very nice! Easy to make, very tasty, good texture. I used 3 jalapenos and it was still mild enough for my 5 year olds to enjoy. I think I'll try to add a little extra heat next time (oh yes, there will be a next time) and possibly add a splash of lime juice as well. Thanks for the recipe! Made for PAC Spring 2012.
