Mango, Peach and Pineapple Salsa

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
I agree with the others that mentioned how they disliked the cilantro. This recipe calls for WAY TOO MUCH of it. I think it is safe to say that the cilantro ruined what otherwise would have been a really good salsa. This recipe is good enough to make again, but next time I'll definitely keep the cilantro to a bare minimum. I wouldn't get rid of it completely because the cilantro does add flavor and kick to it, but because it is such a strong herb, the MOST I'll add next time is 1/5 cup, probably less. I put the salsa over some salmon but I liked the salmon better without the salsa. Maybe the excessive amount of cilantro steered me away. It may have otherwise been really good. Keep note that this recipe is set to yield 16 servings, which I didn't realize until after I had made it. It makes a lot. I also added only half an onion and I'm glad I did, especially because I'm not a big fan of using lots of onion. A small amount is okay, but I think a whole onion would have been too much Tomorrow I plan on making the same recipe (but this time not using any cilantro) and adding it to what I currently have to weaken the intensity of the cilantro. My advice is that if you're not sure about using the large amounts of a particular food that this recipe calls for (such as onion or cilantro), use only half of what the recipe calls for. See how you like it. If you think it needs more, add more. Be careful because once you add too much, there's no getting it out...
