Quick and Easy Salsa

I've got food posts this week!!!

Last week was crazy. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I was working on a brief that had to be filed on Friday. As predicted, I filed the document barely on time. Whew!

Of course, I celebrated the end of the work week by cooking up a storm this weekend, relaxing with a good British suspense novel, watching the French Open, paying extra attention to my chihuahuas, and, at night, lying on the sofa watching DVDs.

I made the following salsa for a dish I'm going to write about tomorrow. I love fresh homemade salsa. It's cheaper to make than buying it in a grocery store and tastes way better.

Quick and Easy Salsa

1 28 ounce can whole peeled tomatoes, drained
1/2-inch piece jalapeno (more if you desire a hotter salsa)

1 lime
1/2 large red onion, roughly chopped

2 cups cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
Salt, to taste

Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until you achieve the texture you want. (I prefer a chunky salsa.) Add the lime juice and salt.
