Inspired by a gift of gourmet salsa. Dianne Koskinen of Baraga, Michigan created her own delightful version that pairs fresh tomatoes and raspberries. "My husband, Craig, and our 3-year-old son, Jordan, especially enjoy this salsa with crunch tortilla chips," she explains. "And I like that it's a healthy snack for all of us."
The view from our mountain home includes Pike's Peak, so we frequently eat on our wraparound porch in good weather. During family get-together, we often savor this zippy salsa with chips while we feast on the natural beauty all around us.
Here’s a festive twist on traditional holiday cranberry relish. Says Jody Bauer of Balaton, Minnesota: "This salsa packs a tart-sweet blend of fresh flavors, goes together in simply minutes and the colors are beautiful! We think it makes the perfect party dip to celebrate the season."
This delightfully different salsa features a nice balance of sweet, tart and spicy. The accompanying tree-shaped chips are fun and easy to make using tortillas and a cookie cutter.—Janice Christofferson, Eagle River, Wisconsin
After my mild green chilies are roasted, I peel, dice and freeze them to use all year. This colorful zesty salsa is great with chips or served with other dishes.—Terry Thompson, Albuquerque, New Mexico
Typically, I make 60 jars of salsa each fall to enjoy all winter long. I also give it as gifts and donate jars to parties sponsored by the schools our four sons attend. This tasty salsa adds zip to everything from chips to meat loaf to fajitas.
"My husband and I had a dish similar to this in a restaurant, so we were determined to re-create it," says Lisa St. Pierre of Pleasanton, California. "The pork is tender, and the salsa is refreshing with peaches and lime juice."
