"My ex's mom had the best hand-chopped salsa fresca I have ever tasted back in college. Over the years, I have tweaked it to something my friends and family rave about. The trick for this salsa is marinating the onions and jalapenos in lime juice for about 5 minutes before adding the tomatoes and cilantro. There are two tricks to this recipe: 1. Hand-chop everything. It takes a while, but it is worth it. 2. The marinating is what makes this salsa special. Hope you enjoy."

I bought one jalapeno pepper specifically for this salsa recipe. I took Marianne's suggestion and used a red jalapeno as the recipe did not specify which kind to use. I also added a couple clove...
