An easy breakfast, lunch and dinner-friendly recipe

Also known as pico de gallo, fresh raw tomato salsa is a great last-minute addition to any gathering because it requires minimal time, no cooking and almost no cleanup. If you can wield a knife, you can make salsa (and homemade tortilla chips, for that matter). We can't think of a better recipe to merit a trip to your local farmers market, especially when tomatoes are in season. You'll notice the difference in flavor right away. Need more heat? Add another jalapeño — we'll skip the "chile hands" disclaimer this time.
