It's bright and summer harvest in a bowl. Take a trip to the farmers market or local farm stand and you should be able to find all the ingredients for making salsa.  Making your own salsa is much better and tasty then any store bought salsa.  Yes, it takes time to chop all the ingredients but that is when the food processor comes in useful. I prefer to use my knife and cutting board. I can control the size of the cuts.  The heat in the salsa comes from the seeds in the peppers so add a few, lot or none at all.  You control how much heat is in this salsa.  You can deseed the tomatoes, and if less liquid is wanted you can strain the tomatoes before adding the remaining ingredients. . 

Garden Salsa

5 cups chopped tomato's  (you can deseed the tomatoes, and for less liquid you can strain the chopped tomatoes)
3 green onions, chopped
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
2 red chiles, chopped fine
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped fine
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 cloves garlic, chopped fine
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 small green pepper, chopped fine
1 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Chop all the ingredients and mix and place in refrigerator for at least one hour to blend flavors.
