What a great way to make a salad or salsa. This 7 cup was quick and easy. VERY TASTY! I Also, used the same principle to make a salsa but only used 5 cups-1 cup of each-tomatoes, onions, cilantro, pineapple, and 3 limes squeezed(1 cup whole-LOL) . I love the "kiss" principle. I rate this recipe as a 5 star.
