    1 Chopped tomato
    1 Chopped white or yellow onion, medium
    1 Green bell pepper, medium
    1 – 2 Large cloves of garlic, fresh and pungent
    1 – 3 Green Jalapeno Peppers
    1 – 2 Tbsp of White Distilled Vinegar (or the juice of 1 Fresh Lime)
    1 Tbsp canola Oil
    Salt and Black Pepper, to taste

    Wash all vegetables thorougly, and dice to 1/4", mixing with vinegear, canola oil and salt and pepper to taste. YOu may wish to dice to 1/8" if you like a finer salsa. Also, use the green jalapeno’s with disgression, as some people love hot food while others barely can stand mild – so depending upon your pallate, be careful with the jalapeno’s. If you are REALLY into heat, you can add cayenne pepper, about 1/4 tsp to 1/8 teaspoon and this will accelerate the heat to VERY HOT!

    The lime will help to accelerate heat and give it that "authentic" Mexican fresh salsa flavor.

    Eat immediately!

    Should last with refrigeration for at least 2 – 3 days when not being used.

    DO NOT CAN IT unless you follow proper canning instructions from a cook book, or from instructions from your land grant university agricultural extension food science agent and NEVER try to can the salsa without having properly acidified the product with the vinegar or lime juice. This is key in processing the salsa or you may end up with improperly canned food which can be deadly! Just thought I would warn you in case you try to can it. NEVER CAN ANYTHING unless you follow strict cooking instructions from a food processing authority.

    A salsa is a very basic thing to make, as is. I will happily share my recipe with you!

    Ingredients:
    2 tomatoes, diced
    1/2 small white onion, diced
    1 fresh jalapeno, seeded and diced (Keep seeds in if you want spicier)
    1 clove minced garlic
    1/4 vinegar (any kind works though cider makes for the best taste)
    Squeeze of lime (optional)

    Directions:
    Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pan. Bring to boil. Cover and reduce heat. Simmer 20 minutes. Chill before serving.

    Tips: This can be eaten as a "fresh salsa" as well if you prefer. If you wish to nix the cooking, combine all ingredients and cover with plastic wrap. Place it in your fridge for an hour. Stir well before serving.

    Try adding in a fruit such as mango or strawberries for a unique taste!
