    Sazza's Note:

    I found this recipe in the Australian Woman's Day magazine. I made them as an appetiser for a dinner party and they were well received. They are quick and easy to make and can be prepared well before guests arrive. I added a whole avocado into the salsa because I love it. The only other change I would consider would be to use tomato in place of some or all of the capsicum in the salsa. I like capsicum, just not as a main ingredient! Cooking time includes the 3 hours chilling time.

      Yummmmmmmm! We were lucky enough to be invited to the dinner party that Sazza mentions ;) and we all really enjoyed this yummy recipe. I'm also glad that Sazza has posted the recipe here as I can't wait to try the salsa on toast for breakfast or even melba toast as quick nibblies with a nice New Zealand white. A really fresh, tasty, summertime recipe that I recommend to all. Thanks for a great dinner Sazza! :)
