"Great salsa to go with anything Mexican.....or for any gathering! I reduced the amount of corn and black beans to one can each and used scallions instead of red onion and pickled diced jalapeno to taste. I did add a bit more salt and a little olive oil and vinegar to give it more zip. Will definitely make this again....probably with fresh corn this summer!"

"I'm amazed how good this was with such simple ingredients. This was suppose to be served with quesadillas, but it was almost gone before dinner was ready!"

"Not only will I make this again - I can't wait to make it again! Simple; like a party in a bowl...and your mouth. I used red pepper instead of tomato and added a "drop" of olive oil and black pepper. Otherwise....I followed as directed."

"Delicous and healthy!! I made a half batch (just two of us). After snacking on it with chips the first night, I topped marinated, grilled chicken with it the next night. There was still quite a bit left over, so I cooked up some quinoa and stirred in the rest. It was great!"

"This is going to be a favorite! We've only made it once so far, but it was really good! We added a minced clove of garlic, some pepper, & additional salt. I think we'll probably add an extra jalapeno next time, because we felt it needed a little extra kick. But the mix of flavor was really good!"
