I am looking for a salsa recipe with things you normally find at home and the ingredients, if ever, I need to buy them, are cheap and can easily be found here in the Philippines. I am also hoping that the salsa doesn't require chilies, as kids will also be eating this. Would you happen to have a salsa recipe that is like the one I just described? And what are the ingredients that I can use? Thanks.

Chop three large fresh tomatoes, add half of an onion diced, and squeeze a lime wedge over it. (Kalamansi fruit works just as well for the lime.) Garnish with cilantro or green onions if desired.


I've heard of people using canned chopped tomatoes, but the salsa will be squishier.

For some time I looked for an easy salsa recipe that wasn't too hot, and this is what I had in mind. People always ask me for this recipe.
