Salsa Recipe

I've had several people ask me for the recipe for salsa. There isn't really one, so I'll do what I can! :) And this is from Kim. Everything is chopped by hand (or a hand chopper)--if you like very runny salsa, you can probably put everything into a blender and do it that way. I like chunkier salsa, like pico de gallo (is that how it's spelled??). And this usually makes almost 2 big jars of salsa...
5-6 regular tomatoes OR 10-12 Roma tomatoes, skinned*, chopped and drained (my tomatoes
are really juicy, so I throw them into a strainer after I chop them)
1/2 large red onion, chopped
2-4 green onions, chopped
cilantro, chopped (it's all up to your taste. It doesn't take a whole lot)
Lime juice (I squeeze the juice out of 1/4 to 1/2 of a lime)
Salt to taste
That's it! Refrigerate and it'll be gone by the end of day if you're anything like us!
*Kim taught me a trick for skinning the tomatoes very easily. Bring a large pot of water to a gentle boil and drop the tomatoes in--it takes less than a minute (you don't want to cook the tomatoes!). Then put them in cold water (just to cool them off so you can skin them). The skins peel right off!
