How To

Spice It Up With Salsa!

In May, we celebrate the many varieties of salsa, and we’re talking food, not the dance, although the two have a lot in common: colorful, spicy, sometimes sweet with lots of variation.

The roots of salsa as a food go way back to the ancient Aztecs, Mayans and Incas. Typically a combination of chiles, tomatoes and spices, served on all types of proteins, salsas are an easy way to spice up your summer gatherings. Here are some of our favorites.
