Quick and Easy Salsa

As a child, if you had asked me, I could not have told you what salsa was. Now it is practically a staple in the American diet. We were served delicious homemade salsa by some good friends the other night which we loved because it had such a fresh taste and it had no raw onion. Gil and I particularly dislike raw onion, to the point of abhorrence. To the point of getting on people's nerves. So we thought this salsa was particularly awesome. I actually haven't gotten the recipe yet, but I decided to try some of the basic ingredients that she used and created this super-easy version. If you are like most everyone else in the world, and you do like raw onion, then by all means, add it!

Quick and Easy Salsa

1- 15 oz can diced tomatoes (I used Hunt's Petite Diced)
1 can Original Rotel Tomatoes
1 cup fresh cilantro
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients and puree in blender. Serve with chips.

Once you have the ingredients on hand, you are about 60 seconds away from some pretty amazing salsa.

There are few things better than fresh salsa.

I made this today with the raw onion. It was great. I added roasted garlic and a touch of olive oil. I think it's missing something?? Can't put my finger on it. But it was Great!! And very easy to make. I LOVE cilantro... Thanks for the recipe. April

I can understand why you might feel like it is missing something if you are a true salsa fan. We like this recipe because it is so simple and clean tasting. But we are a little different from most in that regard. I have gotten the original recipe now and I will post it soon.
