I love salsa. I always make it. I made this one and brought it to work. Everyone raved. It is the best salsa I have ever had. The jicama really makes a difference.

OK, I made this and my husband made me make it again the next day. It was that good. Here's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.. the time! I used the vidalia onion chopper to save time and it still took almost an hour to make. I'd love to get this flavor in a 15 min recipe. I only used 2 jalapeno peppers instead of the 3. Also, thought it was odd to have such fresh ingredients and then add the one can of tomato & chillies...

I followed this almost to a tee, right up until it was time to add the can of tomatos/chilis. I decided to omit to stay with a truly fresh salsa, and it was wonderful! The lemon/lime juice gave it a tangy flavor and the cumin added a nice zip. I chopped each of the veggies SEPARATELY in a food processor to obtain the desired consistency for each ingredient and added it all to a bowl. The end result was a very coarse salsa that did not have a whole lot of liquid and I was pleasantly surprised. This was my first time using/tasting jimaca and it added a nice crunch. I made this for the heck of it this afternoon, had several friends stop by unexpectedly and it was gone in a short time. I wasn't sure what to expect when I served, but they loved it and I will make this recipe again (minus the Rotel!) after my next jalopeno harvest from the garden! Give it a try!!!!

This salsa is awesome. The fresh cilantro is to die for, and the jicama really does make the difference. I will make this over and over as it is easy and wonderful. THANKS for the great recipe!
