Such a great blend of flavors! I hate all the liquid that gathers at the bottom of the salsa bowl so I do one extra step--I cut the ends off the tomatoes, slice them in half (horizontally), then squeeze out the juice, seeds and whatever pulp falls out. Once the other ingredients are prepared, I pulse the emptied tomato halves in a food processor until they are cut but chunky. Then I add everything else and pulse a few more times. It makes a more hearty salsa. I love that I grow all the produce except the regular onions called for in this recipe!

A lot of reviews here say to take out the vinegar. I MUST DEFEND THE VINEGAR. I was trying to make salsa from a different recipe and it just felt like it was missing something. I found this recipe and added the vinegar and that was it!! (I had already put in lime juice as some had suggested substituting, so lime juice is good, but didn't "hit the spot" like the vinegar did).

Definitely my favorite salsa. Perfect for any potluck!

I've been making this since TOH first published it. I love that it doesn't call for cilantro. I'm not a fan. I only make 2 slight changes to the recipe: My bf doesn't like vinegar, so I use lime juice instead. Also, I don't seed the jalapenos (and I don't measure them... I just add the whole pepper), and I add closer to 1 tsp. of cayenne pepper because we like it extra spicy. Everybody loves it!
