Fresh vs. preserved
Canned ingredients are also ideal for excellent use, especially canned tomatoes. Why?
Canned tomatoes are usually harvested at their maximum maturity. This results in a superior aroma. Within a few hours of harvest, they are processed to retain that flavor.
Anyways in general, fresh ingredients are usually best in most cases.
You can make in two different versions.
One is to chop finely all the ingredients, or the other version is to use a food processor.
If you choose to chop finely the ingredients, then after they are all chopped very finely, add all the ingredients in a bowl, and mix well.
Using processor, is all you need to do, to put them in the processor, and and pulse until chopped small, or pulse until your desired texture.
Taste, and if need, add more salt.
Set it aside in the fridge for at list 30 minutes or more before serving. Can be stored in the fridge up to a week.
