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

It was delicious, with no modifications to the original recipe. Very easy to make and way better than store-bought salsa!

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!

I used a small jalapeño instead of the canned green chiles. This is now my go-to recipe!

Loved it, but added more salt and pepper, personal prefernce, of course.

Delicious! I substituted diced jalapeños for the Chilies and omitted the cilantro. I also only used yellow onion and it turned out great. Quick and easy - this recipe is a keeper thanks!!
