  • Reviews

  • “This was great!I used a little less jalapeno than called for and I probably won’t add the sugar next time (why bother?) The key lime juice added perfect tartness!Thanks!”

  • “ummmmazing! My husband and I ate all of this in two sittings! It’s addicting, I’m going to be making some more the next time I’m able to get to the store for more tomatoes!”

  • “This salsa was very good, though it was a little miled so I added another pepper. Also, it was a tad sweet, I’d reduce the sugar next time.”

  • “I’ve never made fresh salsa before – always prefering cooked ones – but this recipe may have changed my mind. It has a lot of crunch and taste and that was without the sugar and coriander! I also put in some avocado and used it as a topping on my veggie burgers.”

  • “With 3 perfectly ripe avocados mixed in with the rest of the ingredients, this dish turned out to be a great starter for a party I had last weekend.Everyone loved it.Next time I would double the recipe!Thanks ever so much for a great idea.CLS”
