Combine the lemon or lime juice, tomato, mint, cilantro, chiles and sugar in a food processor. Blend until you have a smooth paste, pushing down with a rubber spatula whenever necessary. Add the salt, a little at a time, and blend until you have a balance of flavors you like. You can add more of any of the seasonings, if necessary. Serve immediately.
