I am looking for a salsa recipe with things you normally find at home and the ingredients, if ever, I need to buy them, are cheap and can easily be found here in the Philippines. I am also hoping that the salsa doesn't require chilies, as kids will also be eating this. Would you happen to have a salsa recipe that is like the one I just described? And what are the ingredients that I can use? Thanks.

Chop three large fresh tomatoes, add half of an onion diced, and squeeze a lime wedge over it. (Kalamansi fruit works just as well for the lime.) Garnish with cilantro or green onions if desired. I've heard of people using canned chopped tomatoes, but the salsa will be squishier.

I make 2 different kinds.

Blender Salsa

Put everything in the blender and whirl until smooth.

Pico De Gallo

In a large bowl place the chopped tomatoes. In a food processor place remaining ingredients. Whirl until finely chopped mix in with tomatoes. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight for the flavors to blend. (07/11/2008)

You could use any salsa recipe and just not add the hot peppers. (07/11/2008)

Making Homemade Mild Salsa

Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Green Tomatillo Salsa

Peel the outer paper like skin off the tomatillos. Rinse them off. Toast the tomatillos and arbol pepper. You can do this on the stove or toaster oven. You need to watch carefully so you don't burn them. Place in a blender. Mix with the above ingredients and refrigerate for 30 minutes or so.

I usually serve with chips and crackers of choice.

* I like to add an avocado and/or shrimp with a dash of lemon juice. A few squeezes. Yummy! But my family prefers without them.(07/13/2008)

I don't have a recipe, but do everything to taste.

Put it in the fridge to let the flavors blend for at least an hour. Depending on taste, you can add more of specific ingredients. (07/14/2008)
