Handmade Salsa...Literally

My mother always made her salsa with her hands and it had to have LOTS of garlic! I love this way of making salsa because you can decide by your own hands the perfect consistency & chunkiness of "homemade" salsa you prefer! Get set to get your hands dirty! NOTE: This is a great recipe to get your kids involved with their lil' hands right in the middle of the action!
