Excellent! We thought his was a stellar salsa with lots of flavor. The citrus and cumin made this above average. I did chop the tomatoes smaller than suggested. I'll definitely be making this again!

This is one of the best fresh salsa recipes I have ever had. I served it up this weekend at a pot-luck birthday party and it disappeared in no time! This will be made often here.
