Fresh Tomato Salsa

1 1/2 - 2 lbs roma tomatoes

1 large yellow pepper, chopped

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

1/2 large red onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic

1 tsp salt, plus a little more for your taste

A pinch of red pepper

Juice of one lemon or lime

Chop all the veggies and put them in a food processor.  You don't need to chop the garlic, just put it in whole.  One helpful tip I got from Rachel Ray was when squeezing a lemon or lime into your recipe.  Hold it with the cut side up into your palm and squeeze.  This prevents the seeds from falling into your bowl, and they stay inside the fruit! :)  Worked like a charm for me!  Turn on the processor and puree the veggies! That's it!!

**Now, if you want to make it more spicy, you could do a couple things.  Raw garlic has a bite.  If you want it a little spicy, but not too hot, you could try adding 2-3 more raw garlic cloves.  If you want it very spicy, add some jalapeno pepper.
