"This is amazingly good, and even better on a really hot day. The only thing I did different was to add the whole peeled and chopped cucumber and add 2 jalapenos and the juice of 2 limes."

"Yummy! Packed full of flavor, but still light and refreshing. I used regular sized shrimp and just coarsely chopped them; I also added an extra jalapeno for some added heat. Took this to a pot luck and everyone enjoyed it. Thanks for posting this one... I will be making it again and again."

"Made this last night and it was sensational. Used Doritos "Hint of Lime" chips for extra lime flavoring."

"This recipe was wonderful with a mix of flavor sensations for the mouth! It is definitely best to use the very small salad shrimp (or you can leave out the shrimp for vegetarian.) Also best to put the avocado in as the last ingredient as it will get mushy if stirred too much. I used Roma tomatoes and seedless cucumbers. Could probably use banana peppers if you didn't want it quite as spicy."

"I could eat this every day for a month and still want more, it's wonderful. Thank you so much Maria for sharing a recipe that could have been made for me! I love the way the flavours and textures combine, it's all pleasure. There is the mix of textures in your mouth and the explosion of flavour too. I have a lot of things I like to eat but few things give as much all round sensory pleasure. (I would highly recommend you double or even triple the recipe - it won't make leftovers!!)"

"I make this salsa with the frozen, cooked small shrimp and add them in at the last possible minute. This way when I get to where I'm going, it will still be cold. I also add about a 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder to it and it gives it that authentic salsa flavor."
