We continue with Glamour's twenty recipes with a recipe for Fresh Salsa and the Perfect Cookie

If you missed the first three parts, check them all out here

Fresh salsa

  • 4 large plum tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 small red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, optional
  • Salt and hot sauce to taste

Grate tomatoes and onion on the large holes of a box grater (or dice with a sharp knife). Add cilantro, then season with salt and hot sauce to taste. Makes 2 cups.

The perfect cookie

My dirty little secret: I use the recipe on the Toll House bag (it's a classic!), and then add my own touches, like coconut or dried cherries.
