[Recipe} Restaurant Style Salsa in a Flash

This recipe has been a game changer for us.  I made it for Miss High School's 18th birthday party and it was such a big hit, that I've made it weekly ever since.  It comes together so quickly with things I usually have on hand.  It's very flexible and forgiving, if you don't have a fresh lime, you can use bottled lime (or lemon like I did here) juice.
I usually use the tamed sliced jalapeños in a jar for this recipe but on this particular day I had a fresh jalapeño.   I use a BIG handful of cilantro. I like extra garlic too.
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1/4 onion, chopped
2-4 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 fresh jalapeño, seeded (4-6 sliced from jar)
handful cilantro (depending on how much you like)
juice of 1 lime (can sub bottled)
1/4 tsp Kosher salt
 This is the size of the handful of cilantro that I like to use.
 Add all ingredients to a food processor.
 Pulse a few times until combined and chunky. Don't over process.
 I like to store ours in a Mason jar.
It will keep in the fridge for about 5 days (if it lasts that long!).
