Summer is just around the corner for family reunions, picnics, barbecues and any friendly get-together. Fresh made cold salsa, dips and appetizers are a favorite to serve alongside chips, as a side dish or as a topping for grilled fish. Salsas can also be served with grilled chicken breast or alone on top a bed of lettuce. Whatever the occasion or celebration at your location salsa is always served fresh or chilled.
