Reviews for Crunchy Garden Salsa
"I thought I had reviewed this because we liked it. I did add a few green chilis for spice but other than that I only changed to canned tomatoes and sauce with no-salt added. Good recipe"
"Okay....so I followed the recipe, but didn't really care for it....so I add salt and chopped up some pickled jalepenos...then I simmered it on the stove for about 40 minutes....DELICIOUS!"
"This salsa is great. My husband made it and everyone loved it. Not too spicy, and very refreshing!"
