Simple Homemade Tomato Salsa

It's Saturday and that means football.  And, of course, a day of football means a day of football food.  This season, homemade salsa has become a Saturday staple.  It is an easy and healthy alternative to greasy snacks.

Simple Homemade Salsa

1-2 lbs tomatoes (I use Campari tomatoes when available, but have used plum tomatoes in the past)
1/2 onion (red or white)
1/8 to 1/4 cup parsley (or Cilantro.  I'm not a fan of cilantro and I never have it on hand, so I use parsley)
salt and pepper to taste
juice of one lemon wedge
dash of balsamic vinegar (or whatever vinegar you have on hand)

Roughly chop tomatoes and onions.  Dice parsley.  Combine all three.  Add salt and pepper and stir.  Add lemon juice and dash of vinegar.  Mix.  Add more salt and pepper to taste.
