Fresh and easy, this recipe yields about 5 cups of salsa--plenty to serve a crowd. If you like spicy salsa, use the full amount of jalapenos and add more cayenne pepper.

Certainly a fresher taste than any packaged salsa! I used products straight from the garden & while yes it is fantastically delicious I LOVE a bit of kick in my salsa so I feel like it is missing a certain zest... Next time I may add a touch of jalapeno or habanero pepper! My salsa also turned out pretty runny though the juice is great for a touch of extra dressing on a salad;) Read More

I make a dish like this for most parties except substitute smaller amount of lime juice for vinegar use chopped roma tomatoes drained in a colander before mixing also add more onions and jalapenos to taste plus a "kicker" of a few drops of Tabasco to taste and garlic salt. I like flavors to blend before placing in a colander type serving dish in a well of crushed ice for a party. Though must say I do like your idea of using the drained juice in my salad dressing so will work on the ice draining in a way to save the juices. Thanks! Read More
