I made some fresh salsa last night. I definitely prefer the cooked, but it wasn't that bad. I used about half an onion, chopped finely and it was still too much. I added two jalapenos to my half of the salsa and left them out for the wife. She also said she preferred the cooked salsa. I used one banana pepper, two small green peppers, three garlic cloves, choppped up cilantro (fresh), cumin, and salt for spices, little bit of lime juice, little bit of apple cider vinegar, and about 2 pounds of tomatoes.
Can’t divulge all secrets but when I used to make a lot of salsa I would add a couple of jars of Lassak ring peppers that makes it taste like the picante salsa you buy in a jar and it is really good but you can make it a lot thicker on your own.
It's almost time to start making salsa again. Fresh vs cooked, what do people prefer? I've always made cooked salsa but am contemplating making a batch of fresh salsa. Problem is I don't care for onions that much, so I need a recipe that goes light on the onions.
