Salsa recipe without onion, pepper, or cilantro?

years ago, I had the most delicious tomatoe salsa ever. I tried to get the recipe but it was from a caterer and I couldn't get it. It had no onion, nothing hot, not even green peppers, and I am certain it had no cilantro (I hate cilantro) but there was a green herb maybe basil?maybe there was lime juice, does anyone make salsa without any of the above listed ingredients that tastes great?

    2 Anaheim chili pepper --



    Saute the onions, bell peppers, and anaheims in the oil for a few minutes then add the chicken broth and saute until the broth is about gone. Add the habaneros (I roasted mine first), the diced tomatoes (okay, I added the extra two cans to cut the heat down a bit, so if you want it super hot you can eliminate the cans or a couple of the habaneros), lime and lemon juices, coriander, oregano, sugar, salt and pepper. Simmer for 20 or 30 minutes and add the parsley and simmer a few more minutes.

    Just an opinion ... but salsa w/o the specified ingredients - would not be salsa. Tomato sauce with basil is a good start on a pasta sauce though.
