Heat the grill to a medium high heat. Place the vegetables in a grill pan or basket.

Grill for 10 – 15 minutes until veggies are well cooked and beginning to char.

Allow vegetables to cool for a few minutes.  Carefully put half the warm vegetables in your blender with half of the cilantro and pulse.  Add additional vegetables and cilantro until the entire batch of tomato salsa can be processed to your desired consistency.  Add lime juice and pulse one or two more times to combine.
