I make this salsa whenever there's a sale on tomatos in my local supermarket 😋 I typically have it on sandwiches but today I'll be topping the taco salad with it. Can't wait!

Mmm we hope you love the taco salad, Martunia!

This salsa was so good!
I am distinctly grateful for the serving adjusting feature of the website, so much less labour while cooking since I only do it for myself most of the time.
