Putting it together:
Dice tomatoes in Chopper 2 to 3 cups make a good size bowl. plenty for party and enought to enough a few days to come. Use large cube for chunky my favorite or small a cube you get a mushy salsa. add to bowl
Dice onions a cup to cup in half in chopper ....same here... Use large cube for chunky my favorite or small a cube you get a mushy salsa. add to bowl
If using fresh lime and lemons juice till you get about 1/2 cup.... keep in cup for the moment

in big bowl holding onion and tomatoes.......add the cilantro and peppers start with 4 to 6 and add as needed for heat.
mix then add lime juice about 1/4 cup ....then olive oil 1/4 cup
add about 2 Tblsp of chopped garlic and 1 tsp of salt.
now taste test add more lime/lemon juice if needed and salt of needed more garlic andor garlic powder you like garlic i do..... more cilantro if that is your taste i LOVE cilantro......and then more olive oil if you like but you should not need to.
Your suppose to let it sit in the fridge and let the flavors marry.
you can add fresh sweet peppers...... change the peppers, leave out the cilantro, change the onion....sweet to red to spanish........invent enjoy and eat......
I never can wait that long I usually get me a bowl and set it aside from the rest and munch.....
i make this in large large batches. its good on toast, eggs, hummus, sandwiches, ok its good with anything.
