    Very good basic recipe, with some modifications. Instead of the Italian dressing, I just used 1 tbsp extra-virgion olive oil, and added extra lime juice. Next time I'd add some grated lime peel also for enhanced flavor. I used half a chopped red onion instead of the green. Also, i used about 2 tbsps of chopped cilantro.

    Really good, but definitely needs more lime juice.

    The salsa was time consuming to make- like most home-made salsas, but well worth the effort. The recipe says you can make it up to 24 hours in advance- but I would probably not do that again. While the ingredients do need time to soak together- at the 24 hour mark, the salsa took on a wilted appearance. Very flavorful!

    Everyone in my family raves about this recipe!! If you love salsa and chips this will be a hit in your home too! We like it best with blue corn chips.

    Delicious! Not as time consuming as I thought it would be to make, and well worth the effort. I would probably add a little more lime juice next time.

    This is my favorite salsa recipe--it always gets rave reviews whenever I serve it. Instead of the Italian vinaigrette dressing, I add 2 T. olive oil, 2 T. red wine vinegar and a teaspoon of Italian seasoning. Be sure to use the fresh lime juice and cilantro--they make the whole thing really pop.

    So quick and easy to prepare! I replaced the Italian seasoning with fat free Lime Basil dressing (Maple Grove Farms) . DEFINITELY use fresh squeezed lime juice, too. This worked great as a dip or spread on tortillas with grilled chicken strips. Leftovers taste great even two days later. I don't know how long it actually lasts, since it all gets eaten within two days! My guests and family love it. I will most certainly be making this again.

    I made this recipe with the corn instead of the mango. It was a big hit. I made it for a birthday dinner and my guests could not get enought of it. Needless to say there were no leftovers, but plenty of requests to make it again.
