Homemade Salsa with Canned Tomatoes

I'm not sure why it never occurred to me until recently that salsa can be homemade with canned tomatoes. Winter isn't the best time of year in PA to buy fresh tomatoes for homemade salsa. But my all time favorite snack is chips and salsa. I can polish off a whole bag of lime flavored tortilla chips and a container of salsa in less than 24 hours...all by myself! It is a vice that I really must get control of.

I'll settle for store-bought at this time of year, but it can be so expensive and I really miss the fresh taste in the winter time. So I took a chance and whipped up a batch of homemade salsa using canned tomatoes for a recent taco dinner.

You know what? It was delicious! It had a much fresher taste than store bought, because even though the tomatoes were canned, I used other fresh veggies and herbs. The price was about $1.50.

Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl. For less zesty-ness, use plain diced tomatoes.
