Fresh Salsa

Dana and I love southwestern food.  For that reason, one of our favorite condiments is Salsa. To quench our thirst for salsa, I decided to create a fresh salsa.  This salsa is crisp and refreshing, all the things jarred salsa are not.  If you have never made fresh salsa, I totally recommend it.
