Red tomato salsa

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
1 medium Onion, thinly sliced
4 cups Diced canned Italian plum
1 cup Tomato juice
2 Garlic cloves, peeled

Heat the vegetable oil in a medium skillet over moderate heat. Cook the onion until soft, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a food processor fitted with the metal blade or a blender Add the remaining ingredients except the salt and puree, in batches if you are using a blender, until smooth. Pass through a medium strainer, pressing with a spatula or wooden spoon to push through as much pulp as possible. Pour into a sauce pan and add the salt.
