Fresh Salsa for Wimps

After planting 200 red onion bulbs and listening to the jeers about how all that onion that was going to ruin everyone's lives, I ended up with little or no onion. The poor little things were dug up by woodchucks, trampled by the cable guy, the electric guy, the gas guy and a million other workers. I manage to salvage a few puny ones.
Fresh Salsa for Wimps (i.e. not hot, no peppers)

Tomatoes, seeded and chopped
Red onion, chopped
Garlic, minced
Cilantro, minced
Lime juice

The amounts really depend on taste.
These are the amounts I used. Oooo, just got the thumbs up from the Arizona guy.

2 pounds tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 c. red onion
, chopped (use more if desired)
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
3 T. fresh cilantro, minced (can use 1 T. dried)
1 T. lime juice
Salt to taste

Combine all the ingredients. Let sit at least for an hour. If the onion flavor is too strong, add less or let the onion sit in boiling water for a minute.

That looks delish!

Sorry you put in all that work to plant them only to have them trampled.

Um, amazing. And I'm not normally a big salsa eater, and I usually don't like onions. But I loved this!
