Tomato Salsa without Onions

Recipe by  

"My mother-in-law loves Tex-Mex but has an onion allergy. After several attempts, I invented an authentic tasting salsa that derives some of it's smokey flavor from the roasted pepper. I've taken to roasting the peppers in bulk so I can always have some on hand."

This is pretty good for those of us who hate onions but I think it just needs some salt.

This is a very tasty salsa recipe. The roasted pepper adds depth, and a nice smoky flavour.

Fantastic! I did tweak it though by reducing the amount of chili powder, and also adding in ground coriander. I also have an allergy to onions, so it is rare to find ANY salsa that is made w/o onions. Thanks so much!
