For those of you who are leery of mushrooms…Let me tell you a little story. I have a friend who can’t stand mushrooms and she was shocked when she tasted this salsa. She LOVED it and I’m sure you and your friends will too.

  1. Loved it!!! I can’t tell you how much I hate mushrooms and now I can’t wait to make this again.

  2. I have never heard of a salsa with mushrooms. My husband can eat mushrooms in anything — I’ll have to make this for him. I bet it would be great on a baked potato.
