Fresh Tomato Salsa

This is so great for a quick, raw salsa in a small batch. It has very fresh flavors but is extremely mild. Great for the kids.

3 tomatoes (1 lb.), chopped
1/4 cup  finely chopped red onions
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro- maybe less. You just need enough to brighten the salsa.
1   jalapeƱo pepper, finely chopped 
1T Italian Dressing juice of 1/2 a fresh lemon garlic salt Seed the tomatoes, chop them, and place them in a colendar to drain.
Cover the drippy tomatoes with a light layer of garlic salt and let it drain some more.
(unless you like salsa soup)
Chop, chop, chop, everything else.  I removed the ribs/seeds from the jalapeno, but kept them separately for temperature calibration. ;) Stir the drained tomatoes with your veggies.   Add dressing and lemon, stir.  At this point, taste it. If you want more heat, add some of the seeds/ribs from the jalapeno.
