Tomato Salsa

While there is an endless selection of prepared salsa in the supermarket which taste processed, and there are hundreds or recipes, I feel my recipe is an easy to make, lovely, tasty version of this classic. Nothing beats a homemade salsa, and my favourite basic salsa not only makes a tasty dip, but an amazing accompaniment to so many dishes. Fab with barbecued fish, steak and lamb.
