  2. Combine cilantro and lime juice in a sealable plastic bag, squeeze bag to remove as much air as possible from the bag before sealing, and massage the lime juice into the cilantro leaves through the bag until the leaves are all moistened.
  3. Turn the cilantro out onto a cutting board and chop; transfer to a bowl. Stir onion, tomatoes, jalapeno pepper, garlic, salt, and pepper with the cilantro mixture.
  4. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

this is a great salsa. you can adjust the heat by the peppers. stealing from another recipe I added 1.5 tbls brown sugar. I like a little sweet with my heat!

This was the first time I made salsa. I made some adjustments by adding red peppers and seasonings, and omitting the jalapeño peppers. I mixed it together in a food processor. Delicious!!

This is just the recipe I was looking for. I wanted all fresh ingredients and I wanted it to taste as closely as possible like the salsa from a Mexican restaurant I used to frequent many years a...

Salsa is always good, and this is no exception. I ran out of tomatoes so I use this in my grilled cheese sandwich instead. It makes a great addition to a grilled cheese sandwich too.
