A refreshing twist to salmon that is always a hit with guests. After stumbling across this recipe in the Sept. 2000 issue of Bon Appetit I made a few adjustments to the recipe to meet my tastes. I have found the salsa best if made the day before but it is also great made right before grilling the salmon. I like to serve this with cumin flavored rice and grilled zucchini, onion and tomatoes. I have found this recipe a easy way to combine the wonderful flavor and healthy benefits of adding fish to my eating plan.

I love this salsa! It was easy to make, looked great with all the colours, and my guest raved about it. I actually used it with the maple glazed salmon also listed on the site and it was delicious. I tried the leftover salsa with chicken the next day - awesome! Definitely a keeper - thanks for posting.
