Rated 5 out of 5 by from A definite favorite This is a regular star of our monthly menu. We used fresh veggies from our garden (tomatoes and cucumbers). The salsa has such great flavor! We use the Citrus Herb quite a bit and this one is a favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutting carbs never tasted so good! This will definitely be a regular dinner in my house. I skipped the jalapeno's because I am not a fan. So lite and refreshing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A definite favorite This was so easy to prepare and full of great flavor. I made the salsa while the chicken was grilling. I had leftover salsa and used it the next night on top of romaine lettuce. Also used it with blue chips for a snack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! So easy to make and delicious too! I marinated the chicken with the intention of grilling it and then it rained, so I baked it in the oven instead. It came out very moist and juicy. I skipped the jalapeno in the salsa because my family doesn't like spice and it was perfect for us.
