Super Bowl Salsa

This isn't your typical out of the bottle soupy version of salsa- diced fresh tomatoes, purple onion, jalapeno peppers, cilantro, and lime juice join forces to create a colorful dip that people keep coming back for again and again. It's mildly spiced due to the jalapeno, but super bright because of the lime and herbs. An added bonus, it's also very healthy... well.... until you use chips to eat it with! I usually can't keep up with the demand, so this fresh salsa recipe is for a large batch.
