This is sooooo good! Best if refrigerated for at least an hour so the flavors can meld.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
With a medium kick and lots of fresh veggies, this salsa would be great at your next gathering... I can't imagine anyone NOT liking it.

1 Tbsp
pickled or fresh jalapenos chopped (adjust to your liking)

Mix all ingredients together, adding 1/2 the seasoning at first and tasting so you can adjust it accordingly. Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!

**When I posted this recipe, I forgot to add that sometimes I also add a can of kidney beans drained and rinsed to it. Adding the beans makes this a great vegetarian dish by increasing the protein and fiber.**
