Crisp and refreshing alternative to salsa. Marinated red onion, tomatoes and cilantro make up this traditional table condiment that is great on chicken tacos or with carne asada. Enjoy and make mi abuela proud!

I'm only giving this 4 stars because it doesn't have garlic in it. With garlic it gets 5 stars. It needs at least 2 cloves just to get it going. I use more beause we're garlic people. Let it sit for at least an hour to let the flavors marry. I was afraid the sugar might be too much but it's just right. Read More

I don't know why the description of this recipe says it's an alternative to Salsa. To me it tastes just like Salsa but without the kick of chili peppers. It's not bad but I only gave it 3 stars because it's really just another Salsa recipe. Read More

This was right along the lines of what I was looking for. My wife does not like hot salsa. This worked perfect and knowing that the highest rating was 5 stars she still gave it ten stars. I did use garlic salt. For those that don't like spicy this is it. Read More
