    Used different ingredients. For a more authentic version of salsa, follow this recipe but do not include the green onion and add juice from a whole lime or two. Lime is a key ingredient in many Mexican salsas. Enjoy!  -  14 Jan 2011


    This was good, but you forgot a lot of ingredients to make this great! First of all use LIME JUICE!!!! It really gives it that needed 'punch', I usually use a whole lime juiced. Also, I add some cubed up avocado, and usually I use fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. Add the lime juice for sure though and you won't believe the difference in this reicpe!  -  21 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Holy Hannah... After the changes I made, this is borderline perfection!!! I used two tomatoes (large dice), a half of a large red onion (really fine dice), one green onion (finely chopped), very little jalapeño, 3 sprigs cilantro, Low-Sodium salt, and some lime juice (didn't measure - just went to taste). I mixed it all in a colander, to drain juices. I might end up chawin' this all down before the Fiesta tomorrow!!!  -  02 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
