MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 12, 2011

"If my daughter hadn't tried making a strawberry salsa last year, I wouldn't have even looked twice at this recipe. Combining corn, jalapeno pepper, green onions and cilantro with watermelon & blueberreis didn't sound appetizing to me at all. BUT...this recipe is GREAT! Wonderful blend of flavors and very refreshing! Try it!"
