Author's Notes: Here is the all-purpose southwestern favorite. This simple salsa is unbeatable when tomatoes are at their brilliant best.

If time permits, refrigerate the salsa for two or three hours before serving, so that flavors of the individual ingredients "marry".

Serve it with any of the tortilla dishes, grilled chicken or hamburger, or tortilla chips." From "Betty Crocker's Southwest Cooking".

My notes: I made this 6/3/96. Was pretty haphazard about measuring. Turned out GREAT! Even better next day! Next time, lighter on the cilantro, more lime, and MORE GARLIC!
