Along with your order from this 250-unit Western U.S. chain, comes a delicious, yet simple to clone, fat-free salsa. If you don’t have a food processor, never fear. You can also make the salsa by hand with a large, sharp knife and some steady-handed chopping. Keep your head down and watch the fingers.

2 medium tomatoes, quartered
½ fresh jalapeno pepper, stem and seeds removed
2 leaves fresh cilantro
¼ teaspoon salt

1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor. Pulse 3 to 5 times on low speed until the vegetables are well-chopped. Be careful that you don’t over-chop and puree the ingredients. Pour everything, including the liquid, into a medium bowl.

2. Cover and chill for several hours.

Makes 1 cup.

This recipe is OK, but needs more than just the 4 ingredients. Onion, turmeric, a little lime and more than just two cilantro leaves! A little green pepper adds a nice touch, too.
