FOOD HOLIDAY: National Salsa Month

Photo by Bluestocking | IST.


May is National Salsa Month, honoring America’s most popular condiment: Since the early 1991, more salsa has been sold than ketchup!

Salsa is the Spanish word for a sauce of finely chopped vegetables, that dates back to the ancient Aztecs. Red salsas are tomato-based, green salsas are tomatillo-based and there are dozens of different types of both.

Fruit salsas, such as cherry, mango, peach and pineapple, are a modern invention, enjoyable with grilled meats and breakfast eggs.
