I got this recipe from a friend when I went to visit. I have tweaked it a bit to add some ingredients that I enjoy. Feel free to make substitutions! I usually serve it with tortilla chips but it is also very good by itself as a side dish... and a fave of my vegetarian friends! I suggest making a double batch as it keeps very well in the refrigerator for several days.

What a fresh and tasty salsa! We could eat this with tortilla chips ... or a big spoon. Don't shy away from the dried chili flakes. It really gives this salsa an extra kick of flavor. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
