Hi, Penny,

Our standard salsa cruda recipe calls for about 4 good-sized tomatoes,
quartered; 3 red ripe serrano chiles, sliced  (seeding them diminishes
the heat); leaves from the better part of a large bunch of cilantro; at
least half an onion, quartered; a teaspoon of salt; the two teaspoons of
lime juice. Turn on Cuisinart, empty carefully, pour into a bowl and
enjoy however you like. This sauce makes a wonderful marinade and baking
sauce for chicken and pork, and is wonderful with fresh tortilla chips.
