“This recipe was originally submitted by Mean Chef (IHHDRO). I adopted it after he left the site. My comments in my original review stated, "Although I didn't find this recipe here, I have made this salsa for several years. Due to variations of ingredients on hand, I sometimes make changes (and/or additions). However, this is a very good base recipe for fresh salsa. There is no need to change it; but we all like a little variety now and then." I am the designated salsa-maker among my friends, and this recipe never disappoints.”
