I love the salsa served at my favorite Mexican restaurant, so I set out to match the flavor. I think I've achieved my goal. It's so easy to make in the microwave. Now we can enjoy salsa anytime.

"Very Good! I didn't have any green onion so I used red onion instead. I also diced up a couple jarred jalepeno rings and added 1 T. of the jalepeno juice just for a bit more spice. DELICIOUS!!!!!"
