Fresh Salsa

Our family goes through a lot of salsa! I use to buy an organic fresh salsa, but often it didn't taste very fresh, and it was quite pricey. So, now I just whip up a batch in my VitaMix in minutes! My precious future daughter-in-law, Maria, requested this recipe. So, my dear Maria, this one's for you...

What you need:
 A bunch of cilantro
 Several cloves of garlic
 2 serrano chili peppers
 1/4 onion
 1 tsp. salt
 juice of one lemon or lime
 2 28oz. cans diced tomatoes

 Vitamix or food processor

What you do:
 Rinse cilantro and remove thick stems (thinner stems are okay)
 Place all ingredients in VitaMix, with the tomatoes last
 Pulse several times to desired consistency

Ingredients from Trader Joe's: organic cilantro, organic garlic (use pre-peeled, non organic, if time is an issue), serrano pepper, organic onion, organic lemon or lime, organic canned diced tomatoes
Ingredients from iHerb: Real Salt or Celtic Sea Salt
