Fresh Tomato Salsa

 This is my favorite salsa recipe!
I had it at my 4th of July Barbecue

"Delicious with the traditional corn tortilla chips, this salsa is also great on grilled chicken or seafood."


1 small onion, peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 1/2 cup pieces)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1 medium jalapeño pepper, seeded, cut into 1-inch pieces ( I always add a little more!) 
2 medium vine-ripened tomatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


Place onion, cilantro and jalapeño in work bowl fitted with the metal blade. Process until finely chopped, about 5 seconds. Scrape work bowl. Add tomatoes,lime juice and salt. 
Pulse until tomatoes are coarsely chopped, about 5 to 7 times. 
Let stand for 1 hour before serving to allow flavors to develop. Serve with chips.


Makes 1-1/2 cups
