Easy Salsa Recipe

3 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
4 green onions, chopped (include the green part)
2 Tablespoon purple onion, finely chopped
3 fresh Serrano or Jalapeño chiles, seeded and finely chopped

Tip: Start with one chile of your choice and work your way up to the desired degree of heat.
2 Tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
½ tsp salt, my preference is Kosher Salt
Juice from ½ lime

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Stir well...
Allow the salsa to sit for 30 minutes to an hour to allow the flavors to blend.
Go ahead and enjoy this awesome tasting healthy recipe.
Serve with grilled chicken, or fish, or as a dip with tortilla chips. Makes about 4 cups.

Puree any left over salsa in a food processor for a great-tasting homemade salsa to use in appetizer recipes, as a dip, a taco sauce or even for "huevos rancheros". If you don´t use all of the puree right away you can freeze it in ice cube trays, then remove the frozen salsa cubes from the trays and store them in zip lock freezer bags in the freezer.
