MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 1, 2013

This is great on gilled hot dogs. Has a great flavor but more like a relish than a salsa (okay with me!). Can't wait to try it on some sausages. Awesome way to use up extra zucchini from the garden. It does make a lot so I froze it and now will have for many things in the future. Will definitely keep this near the top of my "go to" list.
