    its a great salsa  -  07 Sep 2016


    SOOOOO Good! At first everyone wrinkled thier noses at the thought of cabbage in thier salsa, but after they tried it, they loved it. It's even better if you let it sit overnight.  -  20 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was very good salsa... just a little too spicy for me personally. I also would add more tomatos next time. I added some vinegar and sugar like the other reviewers suggested and it seemed to add a lot more flavor. I will be making this again. It was fabulous on fish tacos.  -  14 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
