From Cooking Light. Son, DIL, and 4 year old gs recommended so fixed it myself. Loved the salsa! GS eats it w/o the jalapeno in salsa. Serve with coleslaw and black beans or rice. Shh... cheat and make it with ground cumin and cilantro that comes in a tube. Think if you wanted a stronger taste, you could apply rub earlier. Might be good on shrimp.
