This salsa, which relies on the full, slightly sweet flavor of ripe summer tomatoes, is so simple to prepare, you may never buy the jarred version again.
In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, jalapeño (if desired; remember to wash the hot oil off your hands after chopping), and garlic.
Stir in the cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, and salt.
Transfer the salsa to a serving bowl. Serve with plenty of tortilla chips. Serves about 8.
