Basic Salsa

Contributed by Jeff Schiller

2 cups diced tomatoes
1/2 cup minced onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 medium hot pepper, chopped (more to taste; remove seeds for milder heat)
1 large clove of garlic, minced
2 tbsp lemon/lime juice or vinegar
chopped cilantro, basil, parsley to taste
salt, to taste

Mix all ingredients in bowl and enjoy right away, or let marinate overnight for a fuller flavor. Shelf life: 2 to 3 days, so enjoy quickly with chips, in burritos/wraps, or with avocado and eggs for huevos rancheros.
