We are kind of obsessed with this salsa at our house. My daughter and her friends will eat a whole batch with a bag of corn tortilla chips, every chance they get. This is our preferred salsa recipe in the winter when garden fresh tomatoes are no longer available.
We have a favorite summer salsa recipe too, which I will share with you later. This recipe is made healthier, in that it is sugar-free, and it uses balanced salt, which may help with water retention.
