BackstoryThis is the original recipe, which I only use as a reference now. It’s the best salsa ever! I've been making this salsa for a long time and don't use a recipe anymore. I use all of the above ingredients and eyeball them depending on how big of a batch I'm making. The only addition to the recipe is the one can of rinsed corn I add to the mixture. If you make the original recipe you might want to only add half a can. I also think it tastes much better when you make it the day before. Adjust the seasoning before eating. Since this salsa is super fresh, it doesn't last very long -3 days is about the max.
