      Review for Fresh Tomato Caper Salsa only: Great salsa topping for ID #288186 (tails removed) served over a bed of fancy greens. Just perfect for a hot summer night. Thanks for posting Andi!

      This was fabulous! I was looking for something quick and low cal and this was beyond my expectations! I just added more heat by using more jalepeno with seeds! Loved it and will make again and again!! Thanks!

      Delicious! Very flavorful salsa that does NOT overwhelm the scallops. A perfect combo and very pretty presentation. Thanks again, Andi!
