Very mild and a bit bland for my taste. I prefer the flavor of fresh garlic and more cilantro. I also like salsa with onion for more flavor and texture. Glad I at least tried it for a change, but not something I would make again.

Try a fresh whole jalepeno (or 2)instead of the pickled. Add 2 whole green onions and a few shakes of crushed red pepper to the blender. Then you have my salsa! Can eat immediately.

I liked this salsa. I saw it recommended on the site this week and decided to try it. It does kind of have the smell, appearance, and taste of basic restaurant salsa. What I liked most is it is very mild, so it would work fine for kids also. Only change I made was making 1/2 recipe and using canned diced tomatoes. I didn't understand the use the juice with the jalepenos. It didn't say how much, so I added about an unmeasured 1/2 teaspoon. I blended it around medium for about 10 seconds in my Vitamix blender. 1/2 recipe made between 1-11/2 cups.
