Fresh Salsa

I don't remember where we got this recipe - probably the Internet - but we absolutely love it when tomatoes are in season and so tasty! I like all the ingredients cut by hand because food processors and salsa makers tend to make it really runny for some reason and I like it chunky!

2 large tomatoes
1/2 small sweet onion (red) finely chopped
1-3 jalapenos finely chopped
1 large garlic clove finely chopped
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro chopped (we often use less or even none of this)
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice (we usually substitute bottled lemon juice here)
1 tsp olive oil
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp black pepper

This tastes good right away, but even better after a few hours or overnight. It only really lasts well a couple days (if it doesn't get devoured before then!)
