They can be sweet, they can be spicy. They can be filled with fresh herbs and a laundry list of ingredients or as simple as tomato, onion, herbs & spices. On a hot summer day nothing hits the spot like a cool, flavorful salsa filled with our #BestInFresh fruits, veggies and herbs!
Tossed in a simple chili-lime vinaigrette, this is one fully-loaded summer salsa perfect for serving with your favorite tortilla chips or on top of some Mexican-style chicken, steak or fish! Completely no-cook and packed with tasty ingredients, the only work required is rinsing off your corn and black beans, chopping up your tomatoes, onion, and peppers, cutting your avocado into chunks and mixing the all-too-tasty vinaigrette.
With its mild yet sweet flavor, cantaloupe is a surprisingly great ingredient to combine with savory seasonings. This salsa puts its versatility to the test, mixing it with tomato, peppers, garlic, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper. Excellent with chips, even better on a toasted crostini!
A favorite for many, peach is an awesome yet underutilized ingredient in savory dishes. It pairs incredibly well with spice as it acts to ease the heat with its sweetness. This simple recipe includes peach, red onion, red bell pepper, jalapeño, lime and cilantro with salt and pepper to taste. Don’t forget to let the flavors meld together for 30 minutes in the fridge before serving!
A must-try with grilled pork chops, this pineapple salsa requires just pineapple, red onion, jalapeño, lime, cilantro, salt and cumin. You can use fresh, canned or thawed pineapple, making it a super simple way to change up your backyard barbecue routine. Slightly acidic with a little heat, 21+ foodies can get extra fancy by pairing this tropical salsa with a pinot grigio or sauvignon blanc!
While most salsas have a Latin flair with the use of cilantro, onion and tomato, this dip changes things up with small cut strawberries, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, pepper, basil and mint. The acidity of the balsamic with the sweetness of the strawberries is perfectly complemented by the smooth basil, with the mint adding pops of dimension throughout. Try this salsa on some Italian-style grilled chicken for a treat, or atop crostini with a layer of whipped ricotta cheese. YUM!
Cool cucumber, tangy mango and jazzy jalapeño make this recipe shine, especially on some chicken tacos! All you need is 1 mango, 1 small-to-medium cucumber, 1 jalapeño, some red onion, cilantro, lime juice and salt to make it happen. At its best after 30 minutes in the refrigerator, this salsa is a simple and unique way to brighten up any barbecue!
The King of summer fruit, watermelon makes some new friends in this sweet-spicy salsa. Cut your watermelon into small cubes before combining with chopped cucumber, red onion, jalapeño, and some yellow bell pepper. Made extra-tasty with cilantro, basil, lime juice, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, honey and salt, just mix well and serve with tortilla chips for a salsa experience like none-other!
Avocado can do no wrong, especially when it’s served front and center along sweet summer corn. All you need is 2 cups of fresh or canned & rinsed corn, a large, ripe avocado, red onion, cilantro, lime juice and salt. Not only is this mix great with chips, we could also see it being excellent with quesadillas, tacos, or a top flatbread with some cotija cheese. !Ole!
Unlike other salsas, this one does have some cooking involved, but nothing too crazy! Starting with zucchini, poblano peppers, sweet onion, tomatillos and jalapeño cut into chunks, you can grill until slightly charred and tender. From there, chop to smaller bits and add to a small bowl before combining with a flavorful combination of lime juice, hot sauce, lime zest, salt and honey. It’s creative, it’s healthy, and down-right delicious! Serve with some thick, crunchy pita chips for the ultimate experience!
Seasoned with turmeric, cumin seeds, and coriander, this is one salad you won’t want to pass up, especially if you love Mediterranean food! Beginning by heating oil, turmeric and cumin seeds over medium heat, chickpeas and grilled eggplant are sautéed for 1 minute until heated through. From there, season with salt, pepper and the coriander leaves and serve with pita chips, on a pita, or atop some grilled branzino. ????
