Salsa recipe with diced tomatos?



Does anyone have a recipe for the type of salsa with the diced tomatoes and onions? I think those also have cilantro and lime juice or something. I don’t want the kind of salsa that is liquidy like a sauce with a blender, but the kind that doesn’t need to be blended.

Real salsa HAS to be made with fresh tomatoes! There’s just no other way!

2 pounds vine-ripened red and/or orange tomatoes (about 5 medium)
2 fresh serrano or jalapeno chiles
1/4 medium onion (preferably white)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro sprigs
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste

Quarter and seed tomatoes. Cut tomatoes into 1/4-inch dice and transfer to a bowl. Wearing rubber gloves, seed and finely chop chiles. Finely chop enough onion to measure 1/4 cup and chop cilantro. Stir chiles, onion, cilantro, and garlic into tomatoes with sugar and lime juice and salt and pepper to taste. Salsa may be made 1 hour ahead and kept at cool temperature. Yield: 2 1/2 cups

    Just dice up some tomatoes (it helps if you scoop the seeds and juice out of them when you cut them open), an onion and a jalapeno ( I like to add fresh garlic as well) put a rouch chop on some cilantro, squeeze in some lime juice and throw a little salt and pepper in it and presto salsa.

    Here it is: nice and chuncky

    2-3 medium sized fresh tomatoes (from 1 lb to 1 1/2 lb), stems removed, finely diced
    1/2 red onion, finely diced
    1 jalapeƱo chili pepper (stems, ribs, seeds removed), finely diced
    1 serano chili pepper (stems, ribs, seeds removed), finely diced
    Juice of one lime
    1/2 cup chopped cilantro
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Optional: oregano and or cumin to taste

    Start with chopping up 2 medium sized fresh tomatoes. Prepare the chilies. Be very careful while handling these hot peppers. If you can, avoid touching them with your hands. Use a fork to cut up the chilies over a small plate, or use a paper towel to protect your hands. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and hot water after handling and avoid touching your eyes for several hours. Set aside some of the seeds from the peppers. If the salsa isn’t hot enough, you can add a few for heat.

    Combine all of the ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Taste. If the chilies make the salsa too hot, add some more chopped tomato. If not hot enough, carefully add a few of the seeds from the chilies, or add some ground cumin.

    Let sit for an hour for the flavors to combine.

    I have made fresh salsa for years. Here is my recipe.

    Take 12-14 medium sized tomatoes, chopped between medium and course,
    5 hot banana peppers, also finely chopped
    5 medium brown skinned (hot) onions, finely chopped,
    5 – 8 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped (include seeds if you want hotter salsa),
    3 cloves of garlic,
    1 bunch cilantro,
    1 lemon, rolled and juiced
    salt and pepper to taste

    Chop the tomatoes, onions, peppers. Stir together. As you cut the cilantro, use a butchers knife to slice through the bunch to better release the aroma and flavor, chop finely add to tomato, onion and peppers. Chop the garlic and add it. Take the lemon and roll it on a good hard surface. Rolling lemon on hard surface produces more juice. Do this for 1-2 minutes. Then cut lemon in half and squeeze juice into another bowl or container, being sure to remove any seeds. (you can also use a juicer) Pour lemon juice over entire mixture of tomatoes, peppers, onions, cilantro, garlic, etc. Add a liberal amount of salt and pepper. Stir well so that the salt and pepper go through entire mixture. Get some plain tortilla chips, scoop and eat.

    You can also make guacamole very easily once you have this salsa made. Take 6-8 ripe avocados, scoop avocado out of hide, into bowl. Mash up the avocado (you can use a potato masher. Salt. Pour additional lemon juice over mashed avocados (this will keep it from turning dark). Add 2-4 heaping spoonfuls of above referenced salsa. Mix well. Use plain tortilla chips, scoop and eat. Enjoy!
