Easy recipe to follow. Doubled the mix and split it in half again for cooking, to make a batch each of hot and mild salsa. Substituted 3x 800gm cans of tomatoes in juice, for the fresh tomatoes. For colour and a bit more of a lift in flavour, added about 10 diced (homemade) pickled gherkins to each batch and would have added some canned pineapple if I'd had any left in the pantry, have made numerous batches of this and given many jars and the recipe to friends and family. just add sour cream and cornchips...Zucchini are a bountiful plant! This is a keeper recipe..Allie
