    My recipe is very similar. The ACV was always the secret ingredient when everyone loved my salsa.:)
    I at least double your amts because we eat so much of it. I have 3 older sons. I use about half a minced yellow onion (instead of scallions) and haven’t added parsley.

    Some of the ingredient amounts are missing…how much lime juice, ACV and Olive oil?

  3. Victoria


    0 jalapeno?

  4. Emily


    Is cumin supposed to be on there twice? If not, how much should be used?

    When you fermented this salsa, was it delicious? I am hoping yes. ; ) My family is in need of a good fermented salsa recipe. If so, is the recipe exactly the same as listed? Thank you for your input and your informative blog.
