History: I acquired this recipe from an elderly woman in Nuevo Laredo, when I was working there. It was the same recipe that was used for the last three or four generations. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Description: No Cook Salsa (Fresh & Healthy) Preparation time: about 1 hour and worth every minute Serves: 2-20 people


6-8 large ripe tomatoes 
1 bunch cilantro (chopped fine)
1 large Spanish onion 
1 lemon
1 lime
6-8 med. sized jalapeño peppers
1-2 cloves of garlic 
Chop tomatoes and onions in the same fashion, approximately 1/4 inch diced pieces. Strip leaves off cilantro and discard the stems & chop fine (mince). Put the lemon & lime in the microwave, (30 sec.) to yield more juice. Use a garlic press for both the garlic and the jalapeños, (the pieces of peppers that do not go through.... just chop fine & add). Let stand in the fridge for approximately 2-3 hours or overnight, to bring out the flavor.
