What is a Salsa?

Salsa is a common ingredient in Mexican cuisine, usually served as a condiment with tacos. Or it is served as a dip with corn chips.

When everyone thinks of a dip like “Salsa,” normally what comes to mind is the usual “tomato-based” salsa, like our Simple and Easy Spicy Salsa.

But this one is different!

This salsa is made with chopped oranges and avocado instead of tomatoes. It is simple, refreshing, and delicious-tasting!

And, it is AMAZING… to say the least!
