      I also enjoying making my own.

      I usually buy diced tomatoes in a can with onion and cilantro and garlic added in.

      I add more cilantro, garlic, fresh onion, bell and jalapeno peppers, olive oil, lime juice and let it chill for several hours.

      It gets better as it gets older. I add salt when I use because I have found when I salt as I compound, it causes some of the contents to decompose.

            I use LOT'S of cilantro.
            Let me think about it, so I post it properly.
            Check your email.

            Here it is in case anyone else wants to see it.
            ----------------------------------------------
            Tara’s Homemade Salsa
            This makes for a very colorful, and tasty salsa.

            3# FRESH Ripe Red Tomatoes (I normally use Roma's)
            2 clove garlic (smashed)-personal taste here, use what you like
            2 jalapeno peppers-seeded and finely minced-personal choice here-use what you like
            Half red onion -finely chopped
            Half white onion-finely chopped
            1 whole bunch cilantro –finely chopped (stems removed)
            Half red bell pepper-finely chopped
            Half yellow bell pepper-finely chopped
            Half green bell pepper-finely chopped
            Juice of 2 limes—taste preference can be applied here also
            I also use (to taste) McCormicks hot salt-I start out with ½ TBLSP
            Dash of cayenne pepper
            Black pepper

            Put tomatoes, garlic, jalapenos, cilantro, lime juice and spices into food processor.
            Process until a consistency your prefer.
            Just remember if you cut back on the processing time, depending on the size of your jalapenos, you may be taking a zesty bite of the pepper, unless it is finely minced.
            (I like chunky salsa)
            You can add onions and pepper’s to the processor at the end to blend better.
            (Take out and add remaining ingredients.-If not added during blending)
            Taste for salt content, and add more if needed.
            Chill to let flavors blend. (preferably overnight)..
            Just remember, all ingredients can be altered for taste preferences.
            You also may want to add a touch of sugar to modify acid content from tomatoe's.

                      lots of the local restaurants
                      here bottle and sell their own
                      which are much better than
                      the national brands.

                        Hi Again, X!
                        And I like how you can go into supermarkets and get the local salsas practically "homemade" in tubs!

                          he doesn't add it to is sadie's. that
                          sauce is so hot it makes you hiccup.

                            I would love to be able to find fresh local stuff.

                            Our only Mexican Rest. is TOOOOOOOOO salty.

                            The rest is National brands made in NEW YORK CITY!

                              The best salsa I have found anywhere is called Big Papi's black bean and corn salsa. The flavor is incredible. I can eat it everyday.

                                Rossy,
                                That sounds like a nice salsa....If I can find it....I have one that a friend at work would bring in on food days...she called in Salsa Gringo...you could just sit in front of it with a spoon and eat it.
                                A second one I have is very sweet...used a bunch of sugar in it. It wasn't too good with chips ...but we used to make a breakfast pizza, and would use the sweet sauce on top of the crust like you would a tomato sauce, then load it up with all of you regular breakfast stuff...sauage, bacon, potatoes and scrambled eggs, layer your favorite cheese on top and bake it till brown and cheese melted....YUM the salsa just really kicked it off.
