I thought this was pretty good until I brought it to a family gathering and my brother and sister stood over it and ate it all, they thought it was great. I'm asked to bring it to all family gatherings. My brother grows the most beautiful organic tomatoes, so I use his whenever I can. During the winter I use canned petite diced tomatoes. I leave the skin on my tomatoes and keep the seeds in. I hand chop everything.

Very good and quick and easy to prepare!!! DH liked a little more salt, but this was perfect for me. I did peel the tomatoes, DH hates tomato skin! Used cilantro from the garden and also fresh parsley, because I've got lots! A very good salsa, which we are enjoying for lunch, thank you, Christi! Made for PAC Fall 2009

tasty! I used the last of the garden tomatoes and my own onion, so this was very fresh! I will try this again this winter with canned tomatoes. Made for Fall PAC 09. thanks for sharing!

Great flavor just the right heat. I used a large Jalabeno for half the recipe and no canned chilies. Instead of garlic powder I used a fred clove chopped. Served with dinner along side a filet of salmon and a corn on the cob. Thanks for a lovely condiment.
