There is no greater testament to salsa's amazingness than its ability to make you eat an entire bag of tortilla chips. Whether it's tried and true forms like pico de gallo or salsa fresca, or rarified forms with ingredients you have to look up, salsa can be relied upon to provide a light, summery counterbalance to salty fried dishes or accentuate the flavor of all manner of meats and vegetables.
1. Green Tomato Salsa Verde
You've probably run across green tomatoes in their fried form, but they also add a pleasant bitterness and a little body to homemade salsa verde.
2. Cucumber-Mango Salsa
An aversion to spiciness doesn't mean you're out of luck when it comes to salsa. This cucumber mango salsa, for example, is both sweet and cooling, but goes wonderfully with a tortilla chip just the same.
3. Roasted Cherry Tomato Salsa
Roasting tomatoes is a fantastic way to eke tons of flavor out of them if they're underripe or just too early in the season to have that full tomato flavor. This salsa uses them to maximum effect with sweet, salty, and spicy flavors.
4. Fermented Salsa
You can ferment foods because it's good for your microbiome, or you can do it because you like the science experiment aspect of cooking, or you can do it because it tastes good. Whatever your reason, you'll be glad you did when you try this tangy, almost effervescent salsa recipe.
5. Citrus-Habanero Salsa
