There’s always a reason to celebrate. Birthdays. Promotions. Holidays. Food is always involved.
You could say food is the life of our party. Most of the time, anyway.
It’s the center of get-togethers and celebrations at our house. I always have a few snacks on hand when family and friends come over.
And a surefire go-to in my house just happens to be this week’s recipe.
I’ve been known to open a jar of salsa in the past and that’s not a bad last minute fix. But once I show you this recipe, you will be grabbing fresh veggies at the store rather than jars.
Then, just chill and serve. This recipe takes less than 20 minutes to make and is so versatile. If you need a quick snack or a flavorful addition to your supper, this is the salsa for you. Fresh and ready to go. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
