Tip of the Day
National Salsa Month
Love salsa? From cook offs and taste tests, salsas are growing increasingly popular. In honor of National Salsa Month, here are a few facts about salsas that may inspire you to experiment in flavor.
Spanish for the word "sauce," salsas are low in calories and full of flavor. Salsas are available with a variety of ingredients, from tomatoes, jalapenos and habaneras to mangoes, pineapples, strawberries and even beans.
Gone are the days of salsa being just a side for chips. Salsas can be scrambled in eggs, served as a garnish for chicken and fish and even dished up as an ice cream topping.
Whether you enjoy your salsa mild, medium or hot, always be sure to read the label for the sodium content, as some can be higher than others.
