    A good idea (from those of us who were raised with mexican food and yummy salsa)...seed the tomatoes...your salsa will be less bitter that way - 8/22/07

    An added 1/4 tsp. crushed cumin seed and some fresh cracked black pepper brings it closer to what I'm used to in my salsa...I use a chopped, seeded jalapeno for the "chili peppers" and a bit of freshly ground chili powder...I love the "fresh" ingredients route... - 2/10/08

    It is similar to Cheries Pico De Gallo! You would probably love it too! It has more peppers, red and green! - 2/13/09

    I've always used canned, organic, fire-roasted tomatoes and I throw everything in a blender which eliminates chopping. When home-grown tomatoes become available I'll definitely try. I like the idea of having a chunkier, fresh salsa - acutually it looks more like pico.
