Want to hear a funny story?
My dad is a salsa fiend. He always has a jar of half-eaten chunky medium salsa in the fridge.
When I was a kid, I liked salsa too (or maybe it was just the chips) but not all the big chunks of tomatoes. I just liked the salsa juice. Like if you took all the big chunks out, the liquid that was leftover, that’s what I wanted.
I know, weird. Kids like weird stuff until their taste buds develop.
Anyways, when I’d get home from school, while my dad was still at work, I’d get his jar of salsa out of the fridge and dip my chips in until I’d soaked up all of the salsa juice. Later, He’d open the jar of salsa for a snack and only find big chunks of tomatoes, peppers, and onions left.
He just ate it and never said anything so I don’t know if he realized what I was doing or not! Ha!
So, now as an adult, I’ve grown to love chunky salsa too. Thanks, dad!
This is our favorite chunky (secret ingredient) cilantro lime salsa recipe that reminds me of what my dad used to eat when I was a kid.
Funny enough, my husband is also a salsa fiend. Go figure.
He likes all the salsas; chunky, smooth, spicy, mild, black bean, roasted corn, and now this rainbow sala recipe is at the top of his list!
This rainbow salsa recipe actually came to fruition when I didn’t have all the ingredients to make my husband’s favorite cilantro lime bean salad recipe.
However, what I did have were the ingredients to make a colorful rainbow salsa recipe!
My mom always told me to eat the rainbow!
Hey, mom! Guess, what? I listened to your advice!
