Is there a recipe out there on how to make salsa without peppers for people who are allergic to peppers?

Just take any salsa recipe and nix the peppers =].
The salsa I make is really chunky, my friends love it. I used a big can of diced tomatos (drained) and add canned corn, canned black beans, canned chickpeas(garbanzo beans), diced onion and diced cilantro. Its really, really good. You can do fresh as well. I boiled fresh corn one time and shaved the corn off the cob and added it to my salsa one time instead of using canned.
I had to quit using peppers because my husband has an ulcer. I blend up tomatoes (canned or fresh) lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, parsley (dried or fresh) and green onions. Sometimes I add a small amount of cumin.
1 can diced tomatoes (14.5 oz? about that size)
2 tsp cider vinegar
2 tsp lime or lemon juice
2 tsp canola oil
1 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp cumin
Mix well, let sit 15 mins or more...
You can get exotic and use pineapple, mango, peaches, star fruit, kiwi (any of these by themselves or in combination) for your base. Then add red onion, garlic, tomato, vinegar or lime juice, sugar, salt, fresh herbs (either cilantro or basil or parsley). Do all this to taste and have fun! Each one will be different depending on your ingredients. Oh, I sometimes add jam and eliminate the sugar; like use peach jam or pineapple jam instead of sugar. Happy salsa-ing!

I have a question which may seem dumb to everyone but I would like to know what you use Salsa for and what foods you use it with? We are strictly an old fashioned meat and potato family and have never used salsa. Thank you for your reply.
<b>Editor's Note</b> Salsa is a spicy, tomato sauce used in Latin American cooking. Great on many dishes, eggs, potatoes or just about everything for many people!
