Nice flavour exposion! Fresh without all that sodium feedback you get from the jar versions. You'll never buy store bought again after you've tried this!

This salsa was good, but more like pico de gallo rather than salsa. Part of that problem might have been my tomatoes. With all the rain we in Texas had this year my tomatoes were very watery and not full of flavor like normal. We will try this again with a few modifications.
