  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor (remove 1/2 cup juice from the tomatoes if desired). Pulse 4-6 times to get desired consistency.
  2. Refrigerate 1 hour before serving.

Recipe Notes

For a thicker salsa, remove 1/2 cup of the juice from the canned tomatoes before combining ingredients. Diced tomatoes do work in this recipe too.
