Sure, you can buy salsa in a jar, but our homemade version is bursting with the flavors of juicy tomatoes, crisp red onions, and the freshness of chopped cilantro. You could also use a pint of fresh, ripe cherry or grape tomatoes in place of the regular tomatoes. Just halve or quarter them before adding to the mix. If you like things spicy, sneak a minced jalapeño or serrano chile into this mix. A squeeze of fresh lime juice is a nice way to bring all the flavors together. Stir this salsa into ground meat for a chili starter, spoon it atop your plate of scrambled eggs, or use it to garnish every taco, burrito, and nacho before devouring.
