Don Jose's Salsa
Yield: 1 Servings


1 can (large) tomatoes; drained. You may use fresh but surprisingly it
works better with canned tomatoes.
1 Onion; minced
1 bunch Green Onions; minced
1 Garlic Clove: minced (up to 2 Cloves)
1/4 bunch Cilantro (guessing here);minced
1 to 2 Jalapeno or Serrano Chile; to taste
1 dash Vinegar


This was given to me by the manager of our local Don Jose's Restaurant
the occasion of one of my daughter's birthdays. This is her absolute
favorite salsa (mine too!) We have enjoyed their food 12 years now and
their salsa has never missed!

The recipe is loose, but you'll manage just fine by taste.

Don Jose's chefs hand-chop everything, but I manage just fine with my
hand-held emulsifier -- even with the garlic. Leave some tomatoes a
chunky. My suggestion would be to use an electric chopper but do the
by hand to avoid a "metallic" taste. The key is in the amount of
onions you
use --lots!

Have a Great Weekend,
