Sheri’s Super Simple Salsa

Sheri’s Super Simple Salsa is our family go-to salsa.It’s made with canned, crushed tomatoes so you can make it year round. It’s as good in December as it is in July. In July, just add some fresh cut tomatoes to freshen it up a bit.
It takes about 5 minutes to throw together, and it’s as popular with kids as it is with adults.
Perfect for the busy 4th weekend.
