Mild Fresh Salsa

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!

    I also put in diced green peppers and more garlic. Great with fresh garden produce.

    This is a great recipe. All of the fresh ingredients mixed together are so refreshing, especially on a hot, sunny afternoon. Great snack!

    Please dont use this recipe. This was awful. I followed the recipe but it turned out horrible.

    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.
