This is a refreshing salsa that will have your taste buds dancing! Great as a side dish for Mexican night at home and is a fan favorite at the family get togethers or community potlucks.  Just serve with tortilla chips.   Try this sensational salsa as a topper for grilled chicken breasts or grilled chipotle flavored fish.
