Is this the place to ask about this?

Looking for some good salsa recipes and secret ingredients.

I actually made this one up, primarily because I hate cilantro and like my salsa on the mild side!

Salsa Fresca

2 ripe tomatoes (about 1 lb. total), chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 clove minced garlic
1/3 cup coarsely chopped flat-leafed parsley
juice of 1 lime (about 1/4 cup)
1/2 jalapeno, cored seeded and minced
(or use your favorite hot sauce or red pepper flakes)

In a large bowl, combine the tomato, onion, parsley, lime juice and whatever you are using for heat.
Toss gently to mix well. Serve at room temperature, or chilled.
Makes about 3 cups.

*not a secret ingredient, but a good thing to know...
Salt will draw moisture from the tomatoes, making the salsa watery as it sits; so, if you add salt, do so just before serving.

Happy New Year!

The above listed recipes are great. But remember, a salsa can be made of fruit, or tomato and herbs, etc. You really need to do a Google Search under the terms "Salsa Recipes". This will give you a host of recipes that will spark your imagination and get you into the world of salsas. There are just too many variations to use this forum. We can of course give you our favorites, but that is barely scratching the surface. So do a bit of research and then create your own masterpiece.
