I am not the same opinion!

In this salad, it will

I do not want to get annoying, but this sauce (salad) not put either cucumber or avocado! If you put an avocado sauce will be similar to guacamole! And the sauce * Pico de Gallo *, chilli peppers must be chili peppers!

Do not be boring, but your first 3 comments not become clear to me what you harasva recipe. Chillies are jalopeno or serrano, who have no idea how to say in Bulgarian. Also limit may be lime (lime). As Salsa and Pico de gayo has varieties. It may be added not only avodako and cucumber, but mango, radishes and m. N. Guacamole-it is quite another thing and it does not put the tomatoes, onion and coriander.

I forgot to say that this recipe is generally made with fresh tomatoes, but with tin becomes delicious.

Salsa is very fresh and tasty, thanks for the recipe :) I put a chili, quite spicy rose, but not complaining. I have not put cucumber and avocado, but I think it will be a great addition and next time I'll try to have at hand.

xevi, I'm glad that you liked the recipe.

And with cucumber and avocado, chili or jalapeno, lime or lemon juice, salsa is great :) We get it already many times and everything goes very delicious!

This time I put everything in the chopper and I was very pleased with the result.

Gerry, this is an interesting idea, will implement it and I next time :)

I put avocado and it became kind of a wholesale guacamole, which as a result of me I liked and did pretty much, but if one wants avocado pieces must be cut separately. Thanks for the idea, Gerry, to admit my little tedious cutting tomatoes and onion, so it quickly and effortlessly :)

Nevi, and I do not like to cut, especially so finely. Glad to you my lazy approach was your convenient!
