That is some good looking salsa! I love salsa on so many things and a good one with fresh ingredients is the best! Yum!
Chris, salsa has not always been kind to me. We have broken up a few times … I am historically a strong spicer and salsa does not like to have 3/4 of an onion added to it… or 8 cloves of garlic at one time… haha… coming up with this recipe was definitely a labor of love but I think salsa and I will stay together this time 🙂
Your salsa looks so vibrant and nice.. I will try your recipe next time.
Thanks Shobha!! Please let me know how you like it 🙂

I’ll be trying this at the next Taco Tuesday gathering!
