Denise Park's Salsa
comments: "Wonderful flavor. A great homemade salsa for even winter time. Restaurant quality."

1 medium onion
1 bunch cilantro
1 can stewed, diced or chopped tomatoes
2 cans tomato sauce
1-2 t salt

Chop onion & cilantro in chopper. Add the rest of the ingredients until mixed well. You can add almost anything else to spice up your salsa: peppers, jalapenos, lime or lemon juice, chili powder, red pepper flakes.
