Cinco De Mayo Salsa!

Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone! I got a special request from a fellow blogger to make salsa.

ingredients
Beautiful, vibrant ingredients!

Ingredients:

8 Roma tomatoes

I used Roma tomatoes because they were the ripest. This can be substituted just as long as you have about 6-8 cups worth. (I would discourage using grape tomatoes)

2/3 cup cilantro

Im a big fan of cilantro, so I ended up adding more during my taste test. Feel free to do the same!

2-? Jalapeños

I used 2 (but I am kind of a wimp) this is really up to the chef, and I would encourage tasting before adding more than two.  Tip: If you want more heat throw all the seeds in.

1/3 cup yellow onion

I combined the garlic and onion, and put them in the food processor before the final processing.

2-tablespoons (2-3 cloves) garlic

I am ALWAYS using garlic, so to save time I always having this in the fridge. I know, I am a cheater!

1/3 cup green onions

You should chop this finely, and not add into the food processor/blender.

2oz lime juice

All but the really green lime I grew, so I was pretty excited to use them.

Once everything is chopped and prepped, throw it into a blender or a food processor. If not everything fits, split up the ingredients, and once they are done blending/processing, put the batches into a bowl and mix together. You simply blend/process until you have the consistency you prefer. The ingredients added in the bowl (not blended/processed) are green onions and lime juice!

I am a huge advocate of adapting recipes, so if you hate green onions don't add them, if you like Serranos over Jalapenos use those. Go ahead and experiment!
