Mom's Table Salsa

When you live in Washington, access to fresh tomatoes only comes once per year, but our family loves salsa year-round, so canned tomatoes were always my Mom's go-to during the non-summer months.  She has been perfecting this recipe over the years and it is a family favorite.  I love how easy it is to make, and requires very few fresh ingredients, which makes it an amazing option for the winter months, but please believe this is good all year round.  Do not omit the mint, it is the "secret" ingredient that takes this salsa up a notch.
