To me, it’s one of those foods that means good times. Think about it. The majority of the time, when you’re eating salsa, it’s because you’re with friends or family doing something fun. (Or maybe that’s just how it is for me. Maybe the rest of the world sits at home alone digging into a bottle of salsa? 😉 )
Well, either way, to me salsa means parties at the cabin, lunch on the lake or dinner at our fav local Mexican restaurant. And if I have a choice of what kind we’re eating, you better believe it’s going to be this Fresh Nectarine Salsa. Garden tomatoes, juicy nectarines, crunchy jicama, avocados, lime…It doesn’t get better than this. Just dip a salty chip and summer. is. complete.
I remember the first time I tried fruit in my salsa. It was peach salsa from Costco. MIND BLOWN. From then on, I’ve kind of become a salsa snob, because if there’s not yummy, sweet chunks of something fruity to balance out all that spiciness, it’s just not a level 10 for me. #spoiled.
So…now that you know how I feel about fruity salsa, give this Fresh Nectarine Salsa a try. But be careful or you’ll become a salsa snob too. Just you wait.
