Salvadoran Salsa (Chimol) Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2006
I love this recipe...it's very light and refreshing. I usually omit the radishes and red pepper flakes. My girlfriend's husband is from El Salvador and her mother-in-law gave me the recipe but there were no radieshes or red pepper flakes. Oh well, to each their own. To me radishes are very potent. The longer the lemon juice blends with the tomato juice the more flavor you get. The cilantro adds the perfect zing. I usually put this on top of yellow rice although it can be used with chips. I have even eaten it w/o anything else, lol!

Too spicy for me but Husband enjoyed it. I would like to make it again as a previous reviewer suggests - with a fresh jalapeno instead of the red pepper flakes. Thanks!

I substitutes green jalapenos for the red pepper and it tasted a lot better. If you can handle the heat that is ;). Tastes great with a bar-b-q or with mixed with rice....

This was my first attempt at making salsa and it didn't fare well. I'm not sure the exact amount of "1 bunch cilantro" but the amount that I put in... probably a 4th of the bunch I got at the grocery store... was way too much. We couldn't even eat it.
