Reviews for Five-Fruit Salsa
"I LOVE THIS SALSA!! I have been making this for years."
"I do love this recipe but I omit the jalapeno peppers. The tortillas are super easy to prepare start to finish. Been using this salsa as a fresh summer dish since my son was born 16 years ago. Don't be turned off by the peppers and onions. They add something special. A little savory with the sweet."
"I forgot to add in my review last year...I used 1 cup of fresh chopped pineapple. Makes all the difference!"
"I have made this recipe many times, and lmmick is right! It is addicting. It can even be eaten with a fork as a side salad. YUM YUM!!"
