Spicy Red Salsa

Courtesy of Linda Bucci Here is a salsa recipe I just love that is quite easy to make. Hope you and your readers enjoy it too.


1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes with juice (I use fire roasted by Muir Glen If I don't have fresh. During tomato season you can substitute 2 pounds fresh tomatoes, but this fresh salsa must be eaten within a day or two.)
4 large cloves garlic, finely minced
2 fresh green jalapeno peppers, stemmed and finely diced (use one for a milder salsa)
1/2 medium onion, diced
1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro (I like more)
3/4 tsp salt (I use Celtic )
2 tbs apple cider vinegar (I use Braggs)
1/4 tsp dried oregano


Mix all the ingredients together, including the juice from the tomatoes. I throw it all in the food processor. If using fresh tomatoes, you will need to increase the salt, to taste. Serve or refrigerate. Yummmmmmmy.
