READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by A Messy Cook

I love cool summer dishes with lots of contrast in flavor, color, and texture. This salsa recipe is from Light and Tasty’s June/July 2005 issue, and I want to try it sometime soon!

This recipe is totally AWESOME!!!! I have been making it since I found it in Light n' Tasty a few years ago! Everyone loves it and is always requested for any summertime event we attend. I even make it sometimes for DH for lunch! Add a margarita and your done!!!
