THIS IS SOOOOO GOOD!!!!! BEST IF REFRIGERATED FOR AT LEAST AN HOUR SO THE FLAVORS CAN MELD.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
With a medium kick and lots of fresh veggies, this salsa would be great at your next gathering... I can't imagine anyone NOT liking it.

1 small
onion chopped
1 Tbsp
pickled or fresh jalepeno's chopped( adjust to your liking)
1/4 c
fresh cilantro chopped
1/2 c
whole kernel corn (optional)( left over grilled corn on the cob is best)
1/2 tsp
minced garlic
1
avocado chopped (optional)
1 tsp
emeril's southwest seasoning or your favorite southwest seasoning
1 Tbsp

salt and pepper to taste
1 can(s)

******WHEN I POSTED THIS RECIPE, I FORGOT TO ADD THAT SOMETIMES I ALSO ADD A CAN OF KIDNEY BEANS DRAINED AND RINSED TO IT. ADDING THE BEANS MAKES THIS A GREAT VEGETARIAN DISH BY INCREASING THE PROTEIN AND FIBER!!!

This salsa is great for picnics and get-togethers. Just double or triple the recipe and use a food processor. I NEVER bring any home when I take this, no matter how big the bowl!

Sorry for the confusion on the lime or lemon juice. I do use lime juice in mine. I have used lemon in a pinch when out of lime juice. It's still good, but I like the bite of the limes!

Janus, I use pickled jalapenos because I always have them on hand. Not to mention, I tend to use too much when I use fresh. lol. And I totally agree on the cilantro, There's no such thing as too much. I use cilantro on my tacos instead of lettuce!
