My friend, Warren Ledger, gave me this recipe for salsa on the condition that if I ever gave it out, that I would give him the credit. I have made a few changes to fit the taste of my family, but the original idea was Warren's and I would never take the credit from him. Thank you, Warren, for a snack that my family loves.
