This was very yummy - my first time making fresh salsa and I loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this!! I used 1/2 of the olive oil, just because I personally don't need that many calories in anything. I also added another jalapeno, but I think this is just because my jalapenos were weak this go round. I was very skeptical about the olive oil so waited to add it until last, but I loved it. It really does bring the flavors together and gives the salsa a better consistency. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We love the freshness and versatility of this recipe. We add items orleave items out as we have them. You can also adjust the heat to your level by adding more jalepenos. We like to leave the oil out for a healthier option since the tomatoes are fresh from the garden. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used a half clove of garlic and half of a lime. Loved it and will make again. It was really runny but I like my salsa that way. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I agree with the other reviews, reduce the olive oil. I wish I would have read these before making the recipe. Mine had too much liquid, but it was very flavorful - just what I was looking for. I used it on beef & chicken tacos with a little sour cream and queso fresco last night and then as salsa with chips today. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This a great recipe! I used half of the jalapeno and a little less garlic than recommended. I was concerned about the olive oil, but it tasted great. I also used only the cilantro leaves and I added some freshly ground black pepper. I will absolutely make this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! I used only a little bit of olive oil. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Super easy & so delicious! Way better than anything you can buy & it took less time to make than a trip to the store to buy!!! Thank you Tyler for sharing, your recipes are always amazing! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy and delicious. Tastes very fresh and bright thanks to the lime and cilantro. Used fresh tomatoes from the garden which added its own sweetness to the salsa. I agree with others that you can decrease olive oil or omit it( it's really a personal preference. I used 1/4c and it was sufficient. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great use for season fresh tomatoes and cilantro. I omitted the olive oil completely and added a tsp. of sugar to enhance those sweet delicious tomatoes. Makes a tasty dip when drained and combined with a cup of sour cream and a half cup of shredded cheddar cheese. item not reviewed by moderator and published
