This was very easy to throw together. I followed the recipe exactly except that I used about half a sweet red pepper and a little less than half a jalapeno. Served it with tortilla "scoops". Everyone (15 of us) thought it was yummy! Made for Zaar World Tour III.
Yum-my! I served this with tandoori chicken and another salad (Spicy Cole Slaw [#231953]). My variations on this recipe: I used a one-foot English cucumber (peeled but not seeded), the juice of about two limes, 3/4 of a 3" jalapeno, 2T fish sauce, 1T Splenda brown sugar subsitute and two "mango nectarines" (new to me) that I happened to buy. A really refreshing salad and a great accompaniment to all kinds of ethnic or BBQ'd foods! Thanks for the excellent recipe, Toni.
We really enjoyed your Salsa;It was so fresh; the flavours come out just GREAT! I have a problem I am looking for recipes that don't have or can omit cilantro...yours hit the spot. I will be making again. I made it for WT3 Thanks for posting this sone . Rita
I served this with roasted pork tenderloin and it was fantastic! Very fresh-tasting...made the meat shine.
This is so fabulous! I did not use the hot pepper because I was serving it to the kids but dh and I agreed that it would be great with it. When I opened the bowl after it had been in the fridge there was a definite lime smell, but the lime taste was subtle. Great over plain grilled chicken. And when putting it away I could not keep myself from simply eating the last few bites from the bowl! Yum Toni. Thanks!
With mangoes in season, this recipe was irresistible. Totally scrumptious: it's now in my summer favourites cookbook! I used a Lebanese cucumber that didn't need peeling (it's what I always use) and red wine vinegar (it's what was on hand); I added a half sweet red pepper but I omitted the jalapeno (personal taste preference). Delicious with chicken as you suggested but also on its own. This is going to be a regular take-to-work lunch. Thanks, toni, for another gem of a recipe.
This is the prettiest salsa I've ever seen!! Very good too! I'm putting it on cod this evening...if we can stay out of it today lol. I had to use lemon (didn't feel like going to town for a lime) I used an English Cuke..so didn't have the need to peel. I added just a tbls or so of cilantro too. Thanks Toni!
