This sensational salsa is a colorful combination of lots of fresh-tasting flavors. My husband, son and I think it's great as a dip or with main-dish burritos or chimichangas. We love taste-testing my creations together.

"I have made this several times now and each time it is gone in a flash. My 4yr old even loves it! Super easy to make. I don't add the roasted red peppers, cumin or the orange peel. And I use a container of grape tomatoes instead. No real reason, that's just the way that I make it. Delicious!!"

"Leave out the orange peel, add chili powder and a squeeze of lime juice. AWESOME!"

"OMG this is so good! I forget to pick up green onions, so I used a large red onion instead and it was still delicious! I would not add any more heat that what the recipe calls for however, the green chiles in the tomatoes are plenty."

"I took this salsa to our Bible Study and they loved it. I added a little green hot sauce so some thought it was too spicy but my husband loved it."
