Best Ever Restaurant Salsa

Recipe from: AprilN
Servings: About 2 cups

This salsa is a favorite in the house. Made with fresh tomatoes, fried onions (the secret ingredient), cilantro and serrano peppers. It is sure to be a hit in your house too!

2 medium tomatoes, quartered
1 large white onion, diced
¼ cup cilantro
1 serrano pepper, seeded, chopped
1 large garlic clove, crushed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon lime juice
salt
pepper

Heat olive oil in fry pan on medium high heat. Fry onions until blackened but still tender. While onions are cooking, put tomatoes, cilantro, serrano pepper and garlic in mini chopper or food processor on high until all ingredients are finely chopped. When onions are done add them to processor along with the lime juice, salt and pepper to taste. Blend again until desired consistency. I blend mine for a while because I like it smooth like restaurant salsa. Let refrigerate for an hour to marinate. This salsa is great the first day but even better for days afterwards.
