Not your store-bought salsa

I have lots of opinions about salsa, having sampled many commercial jars (my three favourites are Old Florida Gourmet Chunky, Clint's Hot, and Fiesta Nuclear salsas). But there is nothing like making your own.

The salsa at right has one red-ripened jalapeño pepper, one orange tomato (fully orange when ripe), one red tomato, about one-third of a yellow-skinned sharp onion, some minced garlic and snipped chives, freshly squeezed lime juice, and sea salt. The taste: fabulous. And a great addition to our taco meal.
