Delicioso! This salsa is truly fit for a queen! Avocado on anything tastes good to me, but as my dad said, it takes this salsa to another level. I loved the cilantro and cumin option and added some serrano peppers. Viva las Reynas! Made for ZWT 5

This was really good. The olives added an interesting note to the whole blend and I really liked it. A little tarter than what I'm used to in a salsa, but very refreshing. Thanks.

Of the 3 salsas tried this past weekend, this was voted the most authentic, even with the addition of the vinegars! Personally? I think it was inspired thinking! Thnx for posting, Epicurean Queens! Well done. Made for ZWT5 for RRR
