Quick Salsa

Yield 3 cups (serving size: 1/4 cup)
"The best thing about this salsa is that everything can be thrown into the blender with very little chopping - you can even leave some stems on the cilantro. It takes no more than five minutes from start to finish. I frequently make it for dinner parties and other gatherings, and it's so popular that I end up giving away several copies of the recipe every time." CL Reader.
