Fresh salsa where the oranges temper the heat - very good! Kids loved it!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 15, 2012

This is delicious! It has just the right blend of spice and sweet.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 25, 2010

I would definitely make this again, but I used a medium sized onion and would probably cut back even a little more. The amount of onion called for seemed to take away from the oranges.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 8, 2009

Very fresh salad that kind of sparkles with flavor. I served it with pork loin but I'm sure it would be good with chicken too.
