Quick and Easy Salsa

It is practically salsa season and we dream of making salsa soon, but while we await the tomatoes to ripen, here is a quick recipe to enjoy. It makes a nice, mildly sweet salsa. I prefer this to any other salsa, right now.

By the way, I didn't have any of these cans of tomatoes in my food storage, but since I've decided I really like this recipe, I keep a stock of these cans in my food storage for making salsa.

Also, I don't really know who to credit this recipe to. I got it from my grandpa last year and I'm not sure where he got it. So, whoever came up with it - I am grateful and just want to say thanks. I love it!

Quick and Easy Salsa
1 can sliced tomatoes with onion, celery, and bell peppers (I like to chop these more and sometimes puree before adding the rest)
1 can diced tomatoes with jalepenos in rich juice
1 can diced tomatoes with sweet onion & roasted garlic in rich juice

dice or puree as desired
2-1/2 Tablespoons vinegar (apple cider vinegar is preferred)
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 small fresh onion (optional)
little parsley (optional)
can add more jalepeno, if desired

NOTE: I only found some of these varieties of tomatoes in the S&W brand.

Mix up and serve. It also stores well in the fridge for several days.
