I made a trio of dips tonight as I was having several people over and every single one was an absolute hit. I had several people say how great this dip was how light and fresh it was.. I used a jalapeno pepper and also used half a white onion and half a red. I made extra of the recipe hence using a whole onion, as I was having so many people round. This is one of the nicest salsa combo's I have tried. I served this along side your Recipe#369631 and Mandy's Recipe#403579, Both a big hit as well. Fabulous recipes thanks for sharing CHILI SPICE

The white onions are important. I made it with regular yellow onions, and they left a bitter aftertaste. The salsa was still amazing.

This is indeed a simple, fresh, delicious salsa. I made about half the recipe, but used a whole jalapeno, which was just about right for me - not overly hot, just a nice little kick to it. Thanks for sharing!
