    45 minutes

    A colourful fruity salsa to serve with chicken or fish. This version has no chilli so you may want to add half a chopped chilli. Great on a warm summer day.

    Used different ingredients. FANTASTIC! I LOVE this recipe! (I added tomato too & sautéed the majority of the onion) My husband and my 3 year old both couldn't get enough. We served this over 1 1/2 lb salmon the first night. Ate it on crackers with cream cheese as suggested by another user (mmmmm sooooo good!) for lunch the next day and finished it off on top of the Pico de Gallo Chicken Quesadillas from this site for dinner. This is a no fail AWESOME recipe! I can't wait to make it again! Incredibly good for you too!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. Excellent recipe! I added avocado as well. Perfect side dish as well as an appetizer on top of a cracker with cream cheese! I will make this all summer for everyone I know.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. I didnt have mango or red capsicumand used spring onions instead of sweet and used dried coriander. I added a squeeze of lime. This was delicious with fish.  -  29 Sep 2008
