Salsa.... any kind of.... just suits the tropical climate. It leaves such a cooling effect on our body and mind. Salsa is the Spanish term for sauce. They are often tomato based, can be fruit based otherwise. Typically piquant, they range from mild to extremely hot. Used mainly as a dip, they can be extremely soothing on a hot summer day. Have it with your favourite chips, you are sure to love it.
Just the other day saw some fresh pineapples in the supermarket. We get very good pineapples here, imported from Malaysia, they are called Sweet16 Pineapples. I do not know what attracts me towards them.... their freshness or the name. Jokes apart, I thought of preparing a big bowl PINEAPPLE-CORN SALSA for our visiting friends yesterday besides the meaty appetisers. It is so easy to prepare a bowl of salsa with your choice of base, to be served chilled. If they are so easy and quick to make, why should one go for store bought ones. Let us see how we do it.
