This quick-and-easy salsa tastes great as an accompaniment to meat dishes as well as with chips. I teach kindergarten and my husband is a county Extension agent. We've lived down here in the Imperial Valley for 30 years. I say "down here" because Holtville is 15 feet below sea level!

"Wonderful quick and easy recipe. I have made this twice as a way to use up my bounty of tomatoes from the garden. It is great with tortilla chips or served over burritos."
