Zesty Mediterranean Salsa
The addition of olives makes this salsa a little different from other varieties. You can seed the jalapeno peppers if you like. But if your family likes salsa with some "heat", leave them in.
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + chilling
- 8 medium tomatoes, chopped
- 3/4 cup sliced green onions
- 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
- 1/3 cup chopped onion

Editor's NoteWear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
