  1. Wow Kathy thanks for sharing this easy recipe for salsa! Have a wonderful day! 😀

  2. Sounds delicious. But I have to be really careful with foods like this. I have had acid reflux problems for nearly 30 years, and other problems that keep me from having many yummy foods.

    1. Yes, the tomatoes are very acidic. And that jalapeno did give it a little kick. Lol.
      Thank you for stopping by. :)

  3. That looks great Kathy. I like the pretty bowl. Corning ware?

    1. Thank you, Kim. Yes the bowl is Corning Ware. Found it for the $5.00 Goodwill Challenge: Spring Edition. :)

  4. We love salsa in the summertime. For some reason it's one of the few things the Mr. enjoys making - salsa, margaritas, and anything on the grill. Yours looks delicious!

    1. That sounds wonderful, Sally. Can't beat a good margarita.!!!

  5. This looks awesome, Kathy! I love the smell and flavor of cilantro...I say it's like my catnip, haha.
