Love this recipe, it is my go to for salsa these days. I was hesitant to to give up on my home canned salsa, but this is tastier and takes no time to whip up a batch. I double it and substitute lime juice for the vinegar, double the cilantro, and add 1 T. honey.

Albeit using canned tomatoes really makes this speedy, using fresh tomatoes very special. And it really doesn't take that much longer. Other than that, I followed the recipe; don't be tempted to use dried oregano -- it doesn't work.
