    Easy and yummy! I served this with garlic lime chicken, rice, and margaritas and had a tasty date night.  -  24 Apr 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this recipe and I loved it. I love all kinds of salsa with many different ingredients. This is good with chicken or pork, I also put some on top of my salads for a refreshing change. I like hot spicy food so I used more hot peppers. I will definitely make again!  -  03 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Made for Recipe Group. I used parsley instead of cilantro, as I am not a fan of cilantro. A little too much melon, but nice flavors overall. Paired well with the grilled Unbelievable Chicken! Thanks for the recipe.  -  30 Jul 2013  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
