Salsa Recipe....

I don't have pictures sorry... it is red with green stuff in it... hehehe...

I just made Salsa for our Labor Day BBQ with our Small Group from church. So I thought if you didn't already have a tried and true recipe you might like one...watch out this doesn't taste like it came from a jar.

Ingredients:

1 large can of whole peeled tomatoes (or 3-4 fresh tomatoes blanched and peeled)
2-4 cloves of garlic (depends on how much you like garlic, I never use less than 4)
1 cup of fresh Cilantro
1 lime
2 green onions
1 Jalapeno

Directions:
It helps if you have a food procesor. If you don't you will need a sharp knife and everytime I say pulse you chop (a lot). Clean and chop green onions into large pieces (about 2 inches. Cut stem off of Jalapeno slice top to bottom remove the seeds and insides and rinse. Rinse and cut stems from Cilantro,you want one cup after this has been done(not packed). Peel garlic cloves. In food processor combine green onions, garlic, cilantro and Jalapeno (if you do not like spicy only use 1/3 to 1/2 of the pepper) pulse until all ingredients are finely chopped. Slice lime in half squeeze one half into mixture. Drain juice from tomatoes and place all into food processor. Pulse until all ingrediants are well chopped and combined. Refrigerate for a day to have all flavors combine. Yield approximately 2 cups.
