Homemade Salsa With Too Much Onion

We made salsa, and added too much white onion. Does anyone have suggestions on how to "cut" the onion taste?

The only thing I can think of is to add more chopped tomato, pepper and whatever else is in the salsa, (maybe throw in some corn and/or olives too) to lower the proportion of onion in the whole.

You could try soaking the onion in ice water for about 10 min before adding it to the salsa. This will "tame" the taste a bit. I use this method when using strong onion in salads to cut the taste a bit. Hope it helps!
