I love salsa so waiting 8 hours to eat this was out of the question. I compromised by putting most in the fridge and left a small sample to try out. And wow is this stuff good! Being a huge cilantro fan this recipe was right up my alley. I can only imagine how great this will taste tomorrow. I'm tempted to eat this with a spoon it's that good. Great recipe! Read More

This was SO NOT a salsa. This was a pico de gallo. With that said it was excellent for what it was. I love cilantro and I love salsa. But given that we made this for a salsa that was to be used in multiple recipes as well as a disk on it's own it was a letdown at the time... Read More

I made this pretty much as listed but I used organic petite diced tomatoes (juice drained of course). I also used whole cumin that I toasted and ground before adding to salsa. This added great flavor! This was easy to make and even the kidos gobbled it up. Thanks! Read More

Fresh and the Best! I made this yesterday for a Derby party and unfortunatley came home with none left over. You can adjust the spice to your likeness and although it calls for 8 hrs of refrigeration it was very tasty the day it was made. I guess I will need to make it again and regrig so that I can report on the taste the day after! Read More

This was fantastic! I didn't have tomatillos but I added chopped advocado because I thought it fit all of the flavors! It worked perfectly...but...it didn't keep for leftovers so next time I'll leave out the advocado! Read More
