I love salsa, so waiting 8 hours to eat this was out of the question. I compromised by putting most in the fridge, and left a small sample to try out. And wow, is this stuff good! Being a huge cilantro fan, this recipe was right up my alley. I can only imagine how great this will taste tomorrow. I'm tempted to eat this with a spoon, it's that good. Great recipe!

This was SO NOT a salsa. This was a pico de gallo. With that said, it was excellent for what it was. I love cilantro and I love salsa. But given that we made this for a salsa that was to be used in multiple recipes as well as a disk on it's own, it was a letdown at the time...

I made this pretty much as listed, but I used organic petite diced tomatoes (juice drained of course). I also used whole cumin that I toasted and ground before adding to salsa. This added great flavor! This was easy to make,and even the kidos gobbled it up. Thanks!

Very nice recipe. I added a can of corn(drained), and black beans(rinsed & drained). Everyone that ate it loved it.

This recipe is great. I followed it exactly. Lots of flavor and color and it is even better the next day. I would not change a thing but, if you want, its a great base to play with.

Fresh and the Best! I made this yesterday for a Derby party and unfortunatley came home with none left over. You can adjust the spice to your likeness and although it calls for 8 hrs of refrigeration, it was very tasty the day it was made. I guess I will need to make it again and regrig so that I can report on the taste the day after!

This recipe is a delicious basic recipe.I did make some minor changes to suit our tastes (lower sodium and a little milder)and served on Ritz low sodium crackers.Thankyou.
