This is a mild salsa that you can heat up with how ever many peppers you wish to add. The cabbage absorbes the flavors of all the other ingredients. This is a great party food. Cook time is the chilling time.

Thank you so much for sharing this. It is so easy to make and makes a large batch. I have used it with tortilla chips and also with fresh veggies. I have shared with my Weight Watchers group and have received lots of comments.

What a Surprise this was. It was delicious. I did puree half of the tomatoes to give it more of a picante' style texture. I made this for our Labor day weekend and it didn't last the first day! I used only one pepper and that was about the right heat for my family. Thank you Melissa, for this interesting recipe.

I love this stuff! A Mexican restaurant we used to frequent served this, and right before we moved I asked for the recipe. Our regular waiter was so upset to see us go that he shared the recipe with me. If you take out the sugar in your recipe and substitute it with the juice of one orange, then add some freshly ground black pepper, you have their recipe. I love that you can make is spicier or not, depending on taste. If I make it for a party, I add diced avocado. Never have any leftovers, and everyone always asks for the recipe!
