Salsa has lots of advantages: It seems indulgent, but it's actually a healthy choice, fat free and loaded with flavor and vegetables. It's inexpensive, especially when the ingredients are home grown or in season. It's versatile because you can make it hotter with more peppers or make it sweeter with fruit. And it's easy!
- 2 cups chopped tomatoes (or a combination of tomatoes and fresh peaches, nectarines, mangoes or grapes)
- 1/3 cup chopped onion (yellow, white or red)

- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 1 jalapeño or serrano peppers, stemmed, seeded (optional) and finely chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
