Why does my salsa taste tangy? EW. I want it to taste lighter and fresher....does anyone know why it would taste this way, and is there anything I can do to make it taste better?

what ingredients did you use. Maybe you put too much vinegar or lemon juice in it.<br><br><br><br>
I would add some chopped fresh parsley to make it taste lighter and fresher.

You may be able to mellow the tanginess by adding a very small amount of sugar. Start with just a little pinch between your fingers first and see what that does for the taste. If it's still too tangy, try a bit more.<br><br><br><br>
Orrrr... and I haven't tried this... you could neutralize some of the tartness by adding a little pinch of baking soda. In theory, the acidity is making it tangy, so adding baking soda (a base) should counter it. But as I've said, I've never tried it, so proceed with caution.

What kind of salsa are you trying to make. Pico de gallo, quacamole (yaes its a salsa) mango, roasted, citurus ect... It all depends on what kind you are trying to make.

Okay, I saw tiumvir's reply yesterday and it worked like a charm! .....and actually, my husband used a bit too much lime juice (an experiment). We did have to add a little more cilantro too, just to nuetralize the overwhelming parsley taste. LOL. We've been making this salsa (just the regular kind) for a long time now, but decided to see what lime juice would taste like in it. Now we know. EW. Maybe if we used less next time. Hmmm.
