Restaurant Style Salsa

Looking for a classic dish to bring to any party or just to have on hand?  You can't go wrong with this recipe. Loads of flavor and so easy to put together.  I used mine on nacho's but try adding some to a casserole or slow cooker meal.  

When I brought this to a friends party not long ago, we all sat around the table and just tore through a bag of chips and this salsa.  Then dinner was served......and we weren't hungry anymore. 

This salsa is exactly what  you might think of when you are at a Mexican restaurant, it's not the tomato sauce-y kind but more of a fresh tomato taste.  It's essential to let the flavors blend for at least an hour in the refrigerator.  So good, it will be a favorite.
