6 Sweet and Spicy Salsa Recipes We’ll Be Snacking on All Summer


I was slow to come around to salsa when I was younger – I didn’t like anything with even a tiny bit of spice, and I’d only ever had the basic stuff out of the jar.

Luckily I realized long ago that salsa is pure culinary gold, and I love using it to top just about anything I’m eating, from tacos to salads to veggie burgers
