Tangy Texas Salsa Recipe

Publisher Photo
I'm a "transplant" here from Wisconsin. Even after 20 years, I still can't get enough of our wonderful local citrus. This is one way to work it into a main dish. The combination of tangy fruit, spicy jalapeno and distinctive cilantro is perfect over any meat, poultry or fish. We also dip into it with chips.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 1, 2008

"My 2001 annual cookbook has this recipe, and it calls for cilantro, which would be much more authentic anyway."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 14, 2008

"The heading says, "spicy cilantro" but the recipe says "fresh minced oregano" Should it be cilantro in the recipe?"
