There's nothing new here just CG's tried and true multi-purpose salsa recipe. It's quick, cheap and resourceful using up leftovers from the refrigerator and pantry. The reason I use grapefruit juice is because grapefruit is my favorite fruit and I always have it on hand. This is the salsa I use when a particular recipe calls for '1 cup salsa', for example. Note: Use a surplus of tomatoes but not old tomatoes. Substitute the canned variety if your toms are beyond salvaging.
