Step by Step Method
If preferred you can blanch the tomatoes and peel, I left the peel on.
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and stir until mixed thoroughly. Allow to stand at room temperature for one hour; serve; refrigerate any unused salsa.
No special items needed.

- Choose ripe tomatoes for the best flavor and texture.
- If you can't find a Vidalia onion, a sweet Walla Walla onion can be substituted.
- Substitute yellow bell pepper for jalapeno peppers for a milder flavor. The benefit of this substitution is that it provides a milder flavor that can be enjoyed by those who are not fond of spicy flavors.
- Substitute honey for Splenda granulated for a sweeter flavor. The benefit of this substitution is that it adds a sweeter flavor to the salsa that can be enjoyed by those who prefer a sweeter taste.
Mango Citrus Salsa Replace the tomatoes with two mangos, peeled and diced. Omit the jalapeno peppers and replace the lime juice and orange juice with 1/4 cup of mango juice.
Mango Peach Salsa Replace the tomatoes with two mangos, peeled and diced. Replace the jalapeno peppers with one diced peach. Replace the lime juice and orange juice with 1/4 cup of peach nectar.
Grilled Fish with Citrus Salsa: Grill your favorite fish fillets and top with the citrus salsa for a delicious and light meal. The sweetness of the onion and oranges in the salsa pairs perfectly with the smoky flavor of the grilled fish, making for a delicious combination.
Roasted Asparagus: Roast asparagus spears in the oven with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. The asparagus will become tender and lightly browned, with a hint of smokiness that pairs nicely with the grilled fish. Asparagus is a healthy and flavorful side dish that will complement the citrus salsa and grilled fish perfectly.
Q: How long should I let the salsa stand?
A: Allow the salsa to stand at room temperature for one hour before serving. Refrigerate any unused salsa.
Q: Can I use fresh tomatoes instead of canned?
A: Yes, you can use fresh tomatoes instead of canned. Simply dice the tomatoes and add them to the other ingredients. If the salsa is too thick, add a bit of water or tomato juice.
