This salsa is lovely! It tastes really fresh, zingy from the limes & a nice heat from the chilli. I make it all time, goes really well with chicken wraps & spicy sweet potato wedges. The only thing different I do is add a little salt & pepper & leave out the coriander just because both my husband & I hate coriander!

Mmm? Yes I agree Mario but I'm going to give it a try?

Surely, the combo of lime and vinegar will render this dish very acidic. Why is there no olive oil and seasoning?

Very tasty and went well with a Chili and nachos.
