  1. When I came across this recipe I just knew I had to try it, not only because of the orange that's listed, but also because it uses milder chili peppers than what's usually included ~ VERY, VERY TASTY SALSA, & one I'll be making again & again! Many thanks for a great keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in And the SECRET INGREDIENT Is . . .]
  2. Pretty and delicious! I seeded the tomatoes and chopped the orange small. The sweetness of the orange was a nice surprise each time I got a bite with some in it. Nice balance of flavors. Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC Tag.
  3. A deliciously mild and citrusy salsa. I used a serrano pepper and left the orange chunks large. Colorful; delicious the next day too. Thanks!
  4. Very nice salsa. The orange bits (I cut them into small pieces) added a special flavor to it, which made it a little different from your ordinary salsa, very fresh. I even used a little leftover on a salad and it was great!


I'm an ex-pat NZer living in the tropical Top End of Australia. Which makes it a perfect place to make homemade bread and summer recipes all year around. I experiment on my 3 kids who have grown up trying new Zaar recipes every other day and they are thriving. I'm the lacto-ovo vegetarian in the family and somehow I got roped in to become a Forum Host here at Zaar. So check out the Vegetarian and Vegan Forum and feel free to join in whether you are a fully fledged vegan or someone who needs to cater for a vegetarian and has no idea where to start. Every year I try to do something a bit different to push the envelope a little bit. In 2005 I learned how to sail a dinghy; 2006's grand passion is mosaics. Check out my blog! Between raising three children, working almost fulltime and trying to pursue my hobbies...let's say that my time management skills have greatly improved over the years! I am also very interested in living a sustainable lifestyle. Essentially I'm finding that I'm getting back to the country lifestyle I enjoyed in my childhood even though these days I live in themiddle of suburbia. To this end I have started gardening although I am a total gardening virgin when it comes to gardening in a tropical climate. I also have a cookbook with a number of recipes you can make from scratch. Living clean and green is good for you AND cheaper!
