this really isn't a recipe as I cheated and used a purchased (from the Enchilada Lady at the Farmer's Market, which is excellent)salsa. This is what I did.
I mixed a hot salsa and a medium salsa together (one was my own homemade salsa with lots of cilantro and garlic in it). Chilled in the freezer so it was really cold. Ladled it into pasta/soup bowls, and garnished it with a salad of chopped English cukes, red bell pepper, Anaheim green chiles, two chopped avocadoes, a little red onion and cilantro, probably about 2/3 cup veggie mixture, for each bowl. Dolloped a bit of sour cream on top of the salad, and served. It looked beautiful, tasted fantastic and was very easy to make.
