Young children like this non-spicy version of salsa. You can look them in the eye and say, "I promise this isn't hot."   Substitute fresh diced green pepper for the canned chilis for a fresher taste.  Add some of the cilantro (chopped very fine), and then give children their own sprig so they can tear it up and season to their taste.

This salsa really benefits from a little added salt and something to give it a little spicy kick, like chilli powder!
