Comments: This is another quick and easy dish. The title says it is a salsa and it IS great with chips but it also works as a side salad. This has become a standard for us when we travel. It can be mixed up and stored in a single dish and keeps well in a cooler. On occasion, I have also tossed in things like leftover green pepper or green onions. If you are a fan of fresh cilantro, it makes a really nice addition to this dish!
