This is a mix between salsa and bruschetta, it's always a hit at parties and picnics. I made this up for my family, 1/2 of them love Italian food and the other 1/2 loves Mexican food. This salsa seems to satisfy all of them.

My father's remark upon trying what I call a "Bruschetta Salsa": "You could bottle and sell this stuff!" (said between chip bites). This is an excellent salsa and the taste is truly unique and satisfying. Since "salsa" means sauce in both Italian and Spanish it makes sense that this dip bridges the two cultures as well. I chopped the ingredients up in my food processor for a more minced-like texture and then poured the salsa over some plain broiled chicken. Then of course I popped out the tortilla chips and we all chowed down. Wow what a taste experience! Read More

I hate to be the only person going against the tide of positive reviews for this recipe but feel I must. I made this for a family BBQ on Labor Day and it fell flat! Only one person ate it after tasting it my 21 yr old grandson who states "if its edible I'll eat it"! Really disappointed after reading so many RAVE reviews! Read More

I was kinda unsure about how this would turn out but it was great! The only change I made was to double the cumin. I would make this again. Read More

This is now my favorite salsa. The addition of the artichokes really enhanced it. I did not have lemon juice but I had fresh lime juice and used fresh lime basil that I had found at a greenhouse. I also used a couple of fresh hot peppers. I put it on top of a cheese omelot. Wonderful!!! Read More

This is awesome stuff. I barely noticed the onions and I don't like onions. I made this for a party over the weekend and everyone loved it. Very nice as a dip and I think it's great all by itself as a salad type dish. I love the tanginess of artichokes and mixed all together with the other ingredients it's divine. Thanks for the recipe! Another pot luck hit!:o) Read More
