Homemade Fresh Salsa

Yesterday I posted a taco soup recipe.  So, to keep a theme going, here is a recipe for a fresh salsa!  It is absolutely delicious!  Compliments of an Italian friend!  Thanks!

2 large green bell peppers
1 large vidalia onion (or any sweet onion)
2 large tomatoes
2 small jalepeno peppers
2 red hot cherry peppers
2 limes
2 cloves garlic (more if desired)
fresh cilantro
1 TBL salt
1 TBLS sugar

Cut peppers, onion, tomatoes, and garlic into small dice.  Place in bowl.
Cut limes in half, squeeze juice over diced vegetables.
Add salt and sugar.
Add 1/2 c fresh chopped cilantro.
Mix together well.  Let chill in refrig for several hours. 
Best if let chill over night!

**Note . . . We like our salsa quite spicy so I have used hotter peppers in this. . .  (habaneros etc.)
Your choice of pepper determines heat of salsa!
