"A lot of reviews here say to take out the vinegar. I MUST DEFEND THE VINEGAR. I was trying to make salsa from a different recipe and it just felt like it was missing something. I found this recipe and added the vinegar and that was it!! (I had already put in lime juice as some had suggested substituting, so lime juice is good, but didn't "hit the spot" like the vinegar did)."

"I've been making this since TOH first published it. I love that it doesn't call for cilantro. I'm not a fan. I only make 2 slight changes to the recipe: My bf doesn't like vinegar, so I use lime juice instead. Also, I don't seed the jalapenos (and I don't measure them... I just add the whole pepper), and I add closer to 1 tsp. of cayenne pepper because we like it extra spicy. Everybody loves it!"

"Great taste doesn't need cilantro. I have two family members who despise cilantro they will love it!"
