    Such a great blend of flavors! I hate all the liquid that gathers at the bottom of the salsa bowl so I do one extra step--I cut the ends off the tomatoes, slice them in half (horizontally), then squeeze out the juice, seeds and whatever pulp falls out. Once the other ingredients are prepared, I pulse the emptied tomato halves in a food processor until they are cut but chunky. Then I add everything else and pulse a few more times. It makes a more hearty salsa. I love that I grow all the produce except the regular onions called for in this recipe!
