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.

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!

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 jalapeño or habanero pepper! My salsa also turned out pretty runny, though the juice is great for a touch of extra dressing on a salad ;)

That's funny because the recipe does call for jalapeno. Other good ways to "kick it up" is to add a little hot sauce like tabasco or cholula, or whatever you prefer. I like serranos because they have good, more consistent heat than jalapenos (sometimes a fresh jalapeno is totally mild and sometimes hot) and I like their distinct flavor better.

By the way there is nothing wrong with extra juice from the tomatoes/lime juice/red wine vinegar; this is typical of pico de gallo type salsas(which this recipe is very similar to). If you want to keep the flavors from the juice without it being so runny, add just a little tomato paste to thicken it up.
