Though you may have salsa every day, this month salsa is officially celebrated. Though recognized to most as a red sauce out of a jar with three options (mild, medium, spicy), across Latin America, salsa is a nuanced dish. Made with fresh, seasonal ingredients picked from the vine and pulled from the earth and individualized to suit any taste, mood, or occasion, salsas can be a beautiful and gourmet dish. Made zesty, fruity, spicy, smoky, or sweet and served on top of eggs, as a dip with veggies, on top of chicken and fish, swirled into beans or soups, salsas are in fact incredibly versatile - and incredibly delicious.
To celebrate this very sacred of events (don't you love food holidays?), whip up a few batches and have a taste test. Happy National Salsa Month!
