Salsa Fresca

I love salsa fresca...just some veggies thrown together in the food processor, with the addition of a lot of lime juice.  I prefer my salsa very "limey", and a fairly smooth consistency.  I like that this everything in this salsa is small, and the great thing about recipes like this - you can totally adjust the ingredients to your own taste.  Not enough onion?  Add more.  Too much lime?  Use less.  The heat of the salsa depends on how many serrano peppers you use.  Or you could use jalapeños, or I suppose even habaneros, it's completely up to you.  I like mine pretty hot, so I used 3 serranos.  Start with one, you can always taste it and add more.  Enjoy!

Salsa Fresca

1/3 cup cilantro
1/2 onion
2- 3 cloves garlic
1-4 serrano peppers, to your heat preference
2 lbs Roma tomatoes
1/2-2/3 cup lime juice
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp garlic salt

Add the cilantro, onion, garlic, and peppers to a food processor or blender.  Process until smooth, then add remaning ingredients.  Process until it reaches your desired consistency.  Taste, adjust seasonings, serve with tortilla chips.
