Restaurant Salsa

I got this recipe from my childhood friend's sister-in-law's husband's dental patient who owns a Mexican Restaurant. So it is a true restaurant salsa! Best salsa ever!

1 can whole tomatoes (28 oz can)
¼ t. cumin
½ t. white pepper
½ t. granulated garlic
Salt to taste (I use ½ teaspoon)
6-7 TOMATOES, diced
1 pc. celery
1 red onion, diced
1 can 100% tomato juice (11 oz can or two 6 oz cans)
1 T. white vinegar
cilantro (to taste, cut off the stems first)
Canned jalapenos to taste (or use fresh if you can’t find canned)

In blender, mix whole peeled tomatoes with spices (cumin, white pepper and salt)
then pour into bowl. Add diced tomatoes and onions, set aside. In blender add ½ of the tomato juice, celery stalk, and vinegar. Blend and add to bowl. With other ½ of tomato juice, blend jalapenos first then add cilantro and pulsate so you leave small pieces. Add to bowl. Stir well.

*If it is too spicy, add more chopped tomatoes. If it is too bland, put some of the salsa back in the blender and add blend in another spoonful of jalapenos!

Can't wait to try it! I used to make homemade salsa all the time, but I've forgotten the recipe... This looks great! I'm on my way to the grocery store to grab the ingredients...
