Salsas are such a great snacking food. They are great for parties, potlucks or even just for an afternoon snack. One great thing about salsa is you don’t have to worry about it getting cold or how long it’s been sitting out.

And salsas are fun! You can use so many different ingredients and they can be sweet or savory or in this case, both.
