As is this recipe is pretty basic. It's a good launching point. When I went to the Farmer's Market with this recipe in hand I didn't stop with the required ingredients. I used green pepper but also yellow red and purple. Each has it's own flavor so it brings an incredible blend to the salsa. Also I didn't use pickled jalapenos. I used fresh. It had some kick that's for sure! I used apple cider vinegar instead of red wine. AND I added more cilantro (it's one of my favorites). That's the glory of salsa......it's an empty canvas waiting for an explosion of taste and color!!! My mother in law (who is Mexican and can make INCREDIBLE salsa) was even impressed - a rarity:-) I will refer to this recipe in the future but I recommend using this as a springboard for creativity!

I would have enjoyed this more without all the cilantro - it just kills the taste of everything else. Next time I'm either going to drastically reduce the ammount or I will forgo the cilantro alltogether. Seriously, it was harsh. The rest of the recipe was excellent. Everything was fresh & delish. Extremely easy to prepare & any leftovers can be used for chicken, fish, blah blah blah. Read More

Very good salsa. Have made it twice now. I modified the recipe slightly though. I have no red wine vinegar so used balsamic instead. I used lemon instead of lime and a red onion instead of white. I added 2 bay leaves 3 cloves crushed garlic 1 tsp ground corriander 1 tsp ground cumin 1 habanero pepper instead of the jalapenos and more salt to taste. I omitted the cilantro as my fruit and veg store was out but I would normally use it. The one habanero is plenty to make this quite hot. Will maybe use 2 next time to make it extra hot. Read More

very colorful and refreshing. I didn't use food processor for tomatoes as I like a less 'soupy' salsa so I squeeze the juice and seeds out and dice. Used red onion and had to add 3 cloves of minced garlic. Used balsamic vinegar for the sweet mild flavor. Added the zest from the half of the small lime I had and complimented the flavors nicely. Thanks for this nice recipe. Read More

We really enjoyed this salsa. The only ingredients that we put in the food processor were the tomatoes and cilantro (just minced the rest). We also added 2 garlic cloves (how can you make salsa with no garlic?!) and fresh jalepeno instead of pickled. We used one fresh but two would have been better. We served the salsa over homeade pita chips (cut pitas into six wedges with a pizza cutter then separate and brush with oil salt pepper and garlic powder and bake at 450 until browned). Incredible meal! Read More

This is delicious. I seeded and squeezed the tomatoes before chopping them but as they sit there is more liquid they sit in. I drain that before adding other ingredients so the flavor is not sitting at the bottom of a bowl of salsa. Everyone loves fresh salsa and its healthy and low calorie. The cilantro makes a huge difference do not substitute that ingredient Read More

This was my first attempt at making salsa we loved it! The only change I made was using balsamic vinegar. Very good and I'll make again. Read More

This was exactly the recipe I was looking for to make homemade salsa with the tomatoes I grow in my garden! I added minced garlic and kosher salt for a little more flavor. Delicious! Read More

I made this in the morning so the flavors would really have a chance to blend for dinner. DH & I broke into it at 10am! It's very good. I used organic tomatoes from our food co-op tripled the jalapenos (love the idea of using pickled jalapenos; never tried that before!) added a fresh garlic clove 1/4tsp extra salt & extra cilantro 'cause we love it! Great salsa Valerie!:-) Thanks for sharing your recipe! Read More
