Food Recommendation: Santa Barbara SalsaFood and cooking
Last week, I kept thinking about that fresh kind of salsa that you get at Mexican restaurants, but I didn't actually want to go to a restaurant. And I'd been craving cilantro for days because of that article that was going around. The jarred Newman's Own stuff I had just wasn't cutting it, so I decided to see what I could find the the refrigerated section of the grocery store.
What I found: Santa Barbara salsa. This stuff is amazing. I got the Medium under the "Fresh Salsas and Dips" heading. (The site won't let me link you right there.) I was slightly disappointed that my store didn't have Hot, but this was almost hot enough as it was, honestly. The tomatoes and onions taste fresh, the peppers and spices blend well, and you can really taste the cilantro. Perfect.
I was worried that fresh salsa would have to be used within a few days, but the label says this is fine for four weeks after opening (in the fridge, of course), and there's no way it's going to last that long here - I'll probably eat it in a week. Note: This is also kosher and gluten-free. And delicious. If I didn't mention that.Posted by Kat at April 20, 2010 08:00 AM
