This was really good and easy and the two of us ate it with supper for four nights. The flavors were wonderful. Already on my shopping list to make again. Thank you.

I wasn't sure how to best rate this recipe. The version as presented was delicious with clean and crisp flavors. Reduced the amount of brown sugar to 1/4 cup because I tend to prefer more tang than sweet in these combinations. The flavors reminded me much more of a relish than a typical salsa. With that in mind I added a little cilantro and some red peppers and served it as an easy side to Saturday night burgers (see photo). Once again it was delicious with a great crisp flavor. Sunday comes and I still have half a batch left. Dropped in a bit of jalapeno let it sit and hour and had yet another version to enjoy as a filling in omelets. I loved the way this salsa had all these variations that each time felt like something different which makes this especally nice when cooking for 1 or 2. For that it earned a 5th star with me.
