Here is a link to a recipe that a friend posted on another forum. The only adaption that I might make is changing the honey to agave. It does have hot peppers and green peppers for people who can't have them but it doesn't look burning hot.

I wonder if that would work with spearmint rather than peppermint? I've got tons of spearmint growing in my backyard.
But the recipe doesn't call for peppermint: It calls for "mint" leaves. And the mint leaves sold in bunches in most markets is indeed spearmint or a variant thereof. Peppermint, in fact, would probably be "too deep" for this salsa, i.e., not as "green"-tasting. Good for you, ruthiegirl, with all that spearmint. Do start a thread telling us what you do with it...if you like

I didn't even know it was there until my daughter showed me last night. I know the previous next-door neighbors (who moved 3 years ago) had a LOT of it and offered us some. The current next-door neighbors ripped it all out and planted something else in its place (grass seed perhaps?) Apparently, DD1 had planted some of it on the opposite side of the backyard (ie, not next to the neighbors who first offered us some) and it's growing like a weed. In fact, I thought it was weeds at first, until she pointed it out to me (and I had to taste a leaf, just to make sure. )
I haven't yet decided what to do with all those mint leaves. Or how to keep the new basil plant alive and thriving (it's now planted in full sun, in the front of the house, next to a few strawberry plants, in a small "lanscaped" section that used to hold random green things that weren't edible.) There are more food producing plants in pots that will probably go into the ground next week. I'm not even sure what DD1 selected when she and my Mom went shopping this weekend.
