Fresh Tomato Salsa ~ Basic Mexican Salsa Recipe

Mexican Tomato Salsa is a popular condiment. It can be served as salad or sauce along with tortilla chips as a snack, or with taco/burritos as a part of meal. Its easy, quick and simple to make and its fresh tangy flavor is a real crowd pleaser. Many like to discard its water but I just love the tangy tomato water which enhance the flavor and make it more delicious. Here goes the EzRecipe to make Authentic Fresh Tomato Salsa.
