Sundried Tomatoes Salsa

I made this Salsa for a party and forgot to take pics : ( 
As you all know I take lot of pics and post step by step instructions with pics. The salsa was a hit so I decided to post the recipe but only have few photos of it.   Then I thought this would be good test to see if feed burner sends this to my subscribers as they have not been receiving my feeds. I checked what was the problem and it says that I have too many pics. So I thought let me share this recipe with less pics and see if the subscribers gets this in their email.
I did make a lot of it, and used some for the party and some I took it to work and at both places everyone loved it !

Here are the ingredients I used:
  • 3/4 of  Sun dried tomatoes Jar with its olive oil (from Costco)
  • 1 20 oz can of crushed tomatoes

  • 1 small green pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 yellow or white onion
  • 3-4 green onions
  • 10 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cooked beet  (I used pickled beet from jar in its juice. Costco again, they should pay me right? ;)

  • 1/4 cup of pickled Jalapenos
  • 1 cup of Red Wine Vinegar
  • Juice from 1 fresh lime
  •  1 bunch of cilantro
  • 2-3 tablespoon of olive oil
