This is a basic chunky salsa recipe. I tried it with chopped scallions one day when I was out of fresh cilantro and was pleased with the result. It is *essential* to use fresh cilantro and jalapenos. If you don't have them, don't bother making it--seriously! Also, you can use crushed pineapple, but it makes the salsa quite watery. I recommend using tidbits instead.
