2 med. tomatoes, chopped
4 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 med. green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 med. red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. fresh parsley, chopped
1 (8 oz.) bottle Italian salad dressing (or you can make your own vinaigrette)
