This salsa recipe is great not only with salmon, but also grilled chicken breasts and barbecued shrimp kabobs. The only fresh ingredient not available in my son's garden was the avocado! Make a double batch of the salsa to serve with crisp tortilla chips. —Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida

MY REVIEW

"This dish was absolutely delicious! I had worried that the cayenne would over-power the taste of the salmon, but instead, it enhanced it beautifully. The salsa is scrumptious . I don't like cilantro so substituted fresh parsley, and it worked well. The salsa is fresh tasting and the touch of lime in it and on the salmon makes the whole dish perfect for spring or summer."

"This is one of the best recipes I have ever tried. I will make the salsa again and again to serve with other meats, chips, salads, etc. So simple to make and so healthy. I used exactly the amount of cayenne and jalpena as called for in the recipe and the degree of heat was perfect for our family--subtle but definitely present. If you like things really hot, definitely add more of both."
