Tangy Texas Salsa

I'm a "transplant" from Wisconsin currently living in Texas. Even after 20 years, I 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. —Lois Kildahl, McAllen, Texas

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

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