This was fantastic and like other comments made about this recipe "I tried it becuase it intrigued me". To be honest I married two recipes together so mine was a combination and it was killer!!! I didn't add the ginger, and subsititued 1/2 Walla Walla sweet onion instead of green onion. I added 1/4 cup finely minced mint, added 1/2 cup minced cucumber, and I used 2 bananas finely chopped, and the juice from 2 very large limes. I served it with pita (or you could use other flat bread) that I had brushed lightly with oil and Mediterranean spices and grilled that had been cut into wedges. The next time I will also grill some pita with sugar and cinnamon and serve it as a dessert salsa! WOW!

What flavor! Having said that, I will say that both my fiancé and I felt that the habanero pepper overpowered the wonderful flavor of the salsa. I LOVE spicy food, but even this was a bit much. It was edible, but not as enjoyable as it could have been. Maybe I added too much pepper. Who knows? Next time though, I will use jalapeno peppers or some red pepper flakes just to be on the safe side. The combined flavors of the salsa were absolutely incredible. I served it atop a bed of rice and with Jay’s Jerk Chicken as the main dish. Definitely try this recipe, but pepper it to your liking.




When I saw this recipe, I was totally intrigued and had to try it. I'm glad I did, because it is really good! The only thing I would do differently is next time, I'll put half in the food processor and then mix it with the rest. I prefer a part chunky, part liquidy salsa. Thanks Michelle!
