Radishes add a wonderful crunch to this colorful salsa that is also great over grilled fish. There's just enough jalapeno to give flavor without much of the heat. Mary Beth Relyea - Canastota, New York

"Fabulous! A couple of tips: the recipe did not specify Hot or Mild Jalepe?os, and I grabbed a small jar not realizing until I added it to the mix that it was the mild version. This recipe definitely needed the hot version... so I added some sriracha sauce, and that added the heat. Secondly, salsas need to marinate for a while, so I made this two days before the party, but did not add the shrimp until just before serving. Perfecto!!"
