    Really easy to make refreshing change to spice up chicken breasts. Our kids aren't big on spicy foods yet but they love the salsa without the jalapeno  -  14 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was good, I added fresh parsley and left out the kiwi, and used leeks because that's what I had on hand.  -  28 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very pretty and tasty. I used red onion because I couldn't find sweet onion in the store. I added a tiny bit of sugar to compensate for not having the sweet onion. I served this over chicken.. I cut back on the jalapeno because I am a heat wimp, but I actually could have used the full amount. The fruits cooled the heat considerably  -  11 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
