Delicious! I also used a regular orange. My husband doesn't like cilantro so I didn't add any, but if I make it again for just me I will definitely add some and maybe mango and/or pineapple. Excellent presentation, looks much more difficult than it husband thought I slaved away in the kitchen! :)

This recipe turned out wonderful! I used a regular orange, bell pepper instead of jalapeno, and added mango. It was great! Thank you!!

This was even better than it sounded. Had to use a navel orange as that's all I could find. It still cames out great. I added some extra o.j. as the salsa was a bit dry. I also added some fresh cilantro, as that's our preference. I will definatly make this again.
