Reviewed for ZWT3 (the Mexican Mystery Gadget Challenge). This was just wonderful. I tweaked it a bit, mostly in that I used lime juice instead of lemon juice. I didn't have a red bell pepper, so I used a handful of red and orange sweet peppers. Loved the addition of the vinegar. Rather than use it as a salsa, I think I'm going to add a can of black beans to it and turn it into a salad all by itself -- it's that good!
