If you have never made this fresh before, your definitely missing out. There is just nothing that compares to the taste of this. The store bought/pre-made versions just never taste as good as when you make it up yourself.
You can easily add to it or take away from it any other ingredients you want to suit your taste. It is so easy to make and can be used in many dishes, or just served up on some tortilla chips! It tastes like you spent way more than 5 minutes to create! This recipe makes about two cups. I love to serve it on Fish Tacos.

Cut up all of your ingredients and add the garlic and salt/pepper. Dump into a mixing bowl, stir all the ingredients until well blended and refrigerate for 1 hour to chill and allow the flavors blend.
