"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)...

I loved it but I don't like spicy things so I didn't use chilles but I loved the recipe but I had to change it because I didn't have all the ingredients

Made to batches today. If you like a bit chunker salsa, quarter the tomatoes rather than dice them. I also grilled the onions, peppers, and garlic to add a bit of smoke flavor to it.


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!

used hot peppers from a friends garden in place of green chilies, delicious!
