That's the joy of Salsa.... TO each their own!

I am currently in a simplistic salsa stage:

Can whole tomatoes, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped
handful cilantro chopped
black pepper
salt
red pepper flakes
parsley
dash of cumin

Eventually I will be back in my complex salsa, then there will be 3 types of peppers, everything will be roasted, etc etc etc...
Love salsa!

1 large red onion - diced small
1 bunch green onions - chopped (green and white part included)
Fresh parsley - chopped fine - to taste
Hot sauce - to taste (if needed if you don't use jalapenos)
Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste

Drain tomato liquid into bowl (if using canned). Chop tomatoes small and add to bowl. Add other ingredients to bowl. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Serve with tortilla chips.

For years I hated cilantro...it left a tinny taste on my tongue. Then I ordered a dish that had cilantro in it (I didn't know), and I loved it. I spoke with chef and he explained to me that there is a fine line with cilantro...it must be chopped very fine and to be careful not to use too much. I've heeded his advice ever since and I now love cilantro.

It is very rare that I taste a salsa recipe the I don't like. There are so many ways to make it. I imagine I would like yours, too, msmoffet. The ones I don't like are generally ones where the cook is trying to impress people with how scorching hot they can make it.

I don't think I've ever made the exact same salsa twice, either. I really shoot-from-the-hip with salsas.

On a side note, I don't care for cilantro either, but I put a little in my salsa once, and it was quite good. Now I use it in every batch. To me, cilantro is like comino/cumin, a little bit goes a long way. I use both, but in small amounts.

Thanks Ms M for the update/ and reviving an old thread.

I think I like salsa fresca(s) the best, made with vine ripe tomatoes as the base. . What I make varies and gets a taste test until we either get it just right, or need to make another bowl, whichever comes first.

2-3 medium jalapenos /serrano's, mostly seeded
about 4 medium tomatoes
1/2 medium size chopped onion
1 good size handful chopped cilantro /usually less, sprinkle more on indiv servings for those who like it
salt pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1-2 limes, juiced
I don't think we put cumin in, have to try that.

Most important: A bowl of guacamole to accompany, and use good quality/ favorite chips.

Sounds wonderful. I would call that pico de gallo.

+1, on all counts.

I love cilantro, though. Could eat it in handfuls.

One of the first recipes that I ever posted here was a salsa with mango for sweetness, and fresh radishes for a peppery bite.

Thanks, mofet.
