this is a great recipe...football starts this weekend be great on game day....easy and quick....hope everyone enjoys it.
I have not made this recipe, but after reading all the comments I feel the need to include mine. I also live in CA and am a bit of a salsa purist, but I don't have a problem with people experimenting with a basic concept. Salsa doesn't always have to be just tomatoes, peppers and onions. Just look at the links at the bottom of the recipe page to see all the creative variations: mango, pineapple, watermelon, cucumber, shrimp, etc. Perhaps we should think of salsa as a generic term for vegetables or fruit cut up in little chunks, usually with some hot peppers or hot sauce, and some kind of herb or spice flavoring. Let cooks be creative and let's honor their creativity. If you don't think you'll like a recipe don't make it. If you want an "authentic" salsa recipe get a Mexican cookbook. And, if you don't like cilantro (or any other Ingredient) substitute something you like. You can tell us how it worked for you, and add to the creativity that makes trying out recipes fun. I respect all my fellow home cooks who have the self confidence to share one of their treasured recipes on this site (even if I wouldn't make them). BTW those of us who like cilantro don't need to hear your opinion of how bad you think it tastes.
Look at the ingredients: tomato sauce? olive oil? parsley? This is definitely not salsa. And without cilantro it is not salsa either. I would definitely not make this one again...It needed more tomatoes, a good pasilla pepper, no tomato sauce, no olive oil, a few tomatillos, and cilantro!
This is the poorest salsa recipe I've ever tried. It is definitely not Salsa--not in California.
Finally! A salsa recipe 'without the cilantro junk' in it! Thusly, it must be good! Even the smell of it is bad for me.
As far as not being Latino, everyone has their likes and dislikes as far as seasonings go - if you like it, just add it!!!
