    And not those pretty looking, no taste having, wax tomatoes. Use vine ripened and after you mix let it sit for a few hours for the flavors to mingle. I include fresh garlic.

    juice from fresh limes and a splash of EVOO

    For an additional treat corn roasted on the grill cut off the cob

    Lots of cilantro

    Let it sit, refrigerated, overnight if possible

    Thanks everyone! We love fresh salsa, thought I'd try making it this weekend.

    Lots of good ideas!

    Now, how long does it last after you make it?

    Secret to salsa.
    If tomatoes are out of season - use Italian tomatoes.
    Use fresh cilantro and juice from a real lime.
