Zucchini Tomato Salsa

Summer is the best time for chips and salsa, but the same old stuff out of a jar can be boring. Spice things up with one of these beauties!

Roasted Corn Salsa
This colorful Roasted Corn Salsa is worth the extra time it takes to grill the ears of corn. The flavor goes well with barbecued meats, but it's also tasty served with chips.

Fast Fruit Salsa
We like this refreshing and colorful Fast Fruit Salsa served with tortilla chips or spooned over grilled chicken. For a fun twist, try stirring in some diced cantaloupe or peaches when they're in season.
—Eileen Miller, Woodridge, Illinois

Asparagus Salsa
Jalapeno pepper and cilantro spice up this refreshing Asparagus Salsa that's made with tomatoes, onion and fresh asparagus. Served chilled with tortilla chips, this chunky sauce won't last long.

Peppy Peach Salsa
Garden-fresh salsas are one of my favorite condiments, so when I saw a recipe for Peppy Peach Salsa in the newspaper, I couldn't think of anything that sounded better.
—Jennifer Abbot, Moraga, California

Zucchini Tomato Salsa
Wondering what to do with all my garden zucchini, I came up with this versatile and colorful Zucchini Tomato Salsa. I also serve it on crackers, burgers, chips, baked potatoes or over cream cheese as a spread!
