Simple Salsa

What can I say about this salsa?  It was a good thing to make on a night when I also had to make bread and salad dressing.  It's fairly quick, and fairly tasty.  I was not blown away, and will probably continue seaching for something more like the perfect salsa that I tasted at a restaurant, but this was by no means something that I did not enjoy.  I had it over baked potatoes.  Combined with feta cheese, this made for a very satisfying dish, with a bit of a unique flavour. 
I think the hardest thing about this dish is all the fine chopping involved, but if you don't mind a bit of elbow grease, than this is a nice thing to throw together when you are pressed for time.  One of these days, I would like to try it over grilled tofu, too.
A word on baked potatoes.  I eat the peel- all of it, no matter how the potato has been cooked.  I have often wondered if I am the anomoly, because most people that I know avoid the better part, if not all of, the peel.  Is this true, I wonder?  M eats about half her peel, and I kid her about it.  But none of my friends that I know of eat the peel.  Why?.. it's most certainly my favourite part.  It's fun to eat with your fingers, too...
