Delicious! I used a big container of grape tomatoes that need to be used up, lime juice, and red wine vinegar. I also soaked my onions in cold water for half an hour to mellow them out a little and added a little extra cilantro and a jalapeno. Used to make Recipe #288094!

This is very good, it tastes very much like pico de gallo. We used it to top Lavender Lynn's Stir Fry Fajitas. I think next time though I will split the batch into two portions and make one with a bit of heat to it. Thanks for sharing Sharon. Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #24
