Want something different to serve your guests for bread dipping? This Good Housekeeping recipe is it. The chile-hot salsa gets its emerald-green color from cilantro. This is great served with warmed French or Italian bread.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this salsa! Very flavorful! I halved the recipe and it made enough for 2 generously topped toasts. Thanks! Made for the Epicurean Queens for Zaar World Tour 5.

Love cilantro and this recipe is a Wow! I also enjoyed that I could make this recipe the day before our cookout/pool party and was one less thing to deal with the day of the party. Served it with a variety of different bread chunks from our local bakery. Guests declared this one a big thumbs up! Made for ZWT4.
