    The white onions are important. I made it with regular yellow onions, and they left a bitter aftertaste. The salsa was still amazing.

    I made a trio of dips tonight as I was having several people over and every single one was an absolute hit. I had several people say how great this dip was how light and fresh it was.. I used a jalapeno pepper and also used half a white onion and half a red. I made extra of the recipe hence using a whole onion, as I was having so many people round. This is one of the nicest salsa combo's I have tried. I served this along side your Recipe#369631 and Mandy's Recipe#403579, Both a big hit as well. Fabulous recipes thanks for sharing CHILI SPICE

    This is indeed a simple, fresh, delicious salsa. I made about half the recipe, but used a whole jalapeno, which was just about right for me - not overly hot, just a nice little kick to it. Thanks for sharing!

    Ive never made salsa before so this was a nice chance in pace (no pun intended lol). I mixed everything up around 10 am and served it on the side of some homemade tacos around 6. I split it up into two batches, one with only alittle bit of a jalapeno and the other with the majority of the jalapeno plus half of another. It was perfect and so much fresher then canned or jar salsa, especially with some produce stand fresh jersey tomatos. Made for Aussie Swap 14


I AM A MARRIED MOTHER OF 3. COOKING IS A PASSION OF MINE. FINE FOOD MARKETS AND GROCERY STORES ARE MY "HANG OUTS". I LOVE THE FACT THAT THERE IS NO END IN LEARNING. I ENJOY THE WHOLE PROCESS OF COOKING, FROM FINDING A NEW RECIPE, GROCERY SHOPPING, EXPERIMENTING -- RIGHT TO THE DINNER TABLE. MY FAMILY APPRECIATES THE EFFORT I PUT INTO MEALS WHICH IS A WONDERFUL REWARD. ~NO PICKY EATERS HERE~ MY CHILDREN'S MINDS ARE OPEN TO ALL TYPES OF FOOD (WHEN IN MEXICO MY YOUNGEST SON ORDERED QUAIL AT A RESTAURANT AND LOVED IT). <img src="">recipe swap 2008 <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> Recipe Swap September 2008 <img src=""> Recipe Swap October 2008 <img src=""> Recipe Swap November 2008 <img src=""> Recipe Swap December '08 <img src=""> Recipe Swap January '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap February '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap March '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap April '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap May '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap June '09 AND July '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap August '09 href=""> <img border="0" src="" alt="Web Page Counter"></a> <img style="visibility:hidden;width:0px;height:0px;" border=0 width=0 height=0 src="*xJmx*PTEyMzc5MTY4MjkyNTkmcHQ9MTIzNzkxNzAxNTY3NyZwPTMyMzAwMiZkPW1hcGxvY28mZz*xJnQ9Jm89ZTM*OTQ2YjBkZDAwNDY*ZTg2YzM5MTIzY2E4ZjI5MjY=.gif" /><a href=""><img border=0 src="" alt="Visitor Map"></a><a href="">Create your own visitor map!</a>
