    Mirj's Note:

    This is a hot salsa that the Yemenite Jews eat with everything. My neighbor always makes tons of it to distribute to all her married children each week (I sometimes wish I were one of them).

      This is a really "snappy" hot salsa. Great flavor and easy to put together. I used pickled jalapeno's and canned diced tomatoes. It's great on fried spuds and want to use it on breakfast burritos. So glad you're sharing Jewish recipes, Mirjam. I love the cuisine even though I can't cook Kosher. Homemade Challa and Bagels are to die for! Thanks so much. Laudee C.

      Great salsa - I used some pickled jalapenos I had in the fridge and it turned out really good. My family usually likes milder salsa but had nothing but compliments about this one.

      This is a nice salsa. It is tasty and easy to prepare. I followed all ingredients and instructions as listed. I served it as the salsa topping for Spicy Ground Chicken. Next time I would probably make it hotter and I felt it was missing something. Maybe onions? I added more salt. I like the other reviewer's suggestion of roasting the garlic. All in all, we enjoyed the salsa and thought it was good. Thanks.
