Another salsa recipe called for a fresh jalapeno (I think), but I had green chiles in a can on hand. This salsa tastes great, so I'm sticking with it!

I think this recipe is an excellent start. I fiddled with it a bit, because I prefer green spring onions rather than raw yellow & red onions. I don't like cilantro (I did still include a little), and even though I warmed and rolled my limes and used a citrus juicer, they had very little juice; so I used half of a lemon for additional juice and tang. I blanched and peeled my garden Early Girl & Lemon Boy tomatoes, because the skins are quite tough. And lastly, I used 2 teaspoons of salt, because I love it salty! Thank you for posting. Read More

It's summer and tomatoes just don't get any better than right now. I didn't have any canned chiles on hand but I did have a jalapeño so that's what I used. Mixed up tasted and then added another squeeze of fresh lime juice and a tad more salt. There are a bunch of good salsa recipes and you can add this one to the list. Enjoyed! Read More

Loved this recipe. I used fresh Hungarian banana peppers instead of canned as I had them from my garden. I did take the time to take the skins off of the tomatoes. Added a touch more salt and cumin. I couldn't stop eating it and will definitely make this again when I have fresh ripe tomatoes. I bet black beans would be good added to this! Read More

Very tasty and fresh - used red Italian peppers from the garden instead of the can of green peppers - added an extra tomato as the red onion was a little strong - will definitely make again! Read More
