I made a bunch of this on Monday with the intention of it lasting us throughout the week.....well it was way too good and only made it to Tuesday afternoon. haha  So I'm definitely going to make a larger batch next time.  I omitted the dill and the sugar and used half a jalapeno & half an anaheim chilli pepper and it created just he right spice.  I ate some right after I made it and some the next day and it definitely tasted better the next day.  So its good advice to give it time to absorb all the flavors.  Awesome stuff, thank you!


This is the best fresh salsa ever! I was seriously addicted to this over the summer. I omitted cilantro and used parsley instead (because I don't care for cilantro  :P)

I also used a bunch of fresh lime juice. Stunning.


I left out the cilantro and sugar.  I used a yellow tomato and added a can of tomato sauce.  It was very  very good! 


This sounds so fresh and delicious! I haven't made it yet, but in this summer heat, it would be the perfect accompaniment to a refreshing summer meal. I love spicy fresh salsa, and this sounds so flavorful!


This was great! I skipped the dill, and added twice the cilantro, garlic, and salt -- super fresh and delicious!


As simple as it is, this is hands-down the best most fresh tasting salsa I've come across.  The only modification I made was to add more garlic. This salsa tastes amazing with the Garbanzo Tacos recipe on this website! :)
