Overview

REVISED OCTOBER 2012 to include METRIC weights and measures as well as American Standard measures

Salsa is defined by The Free Dictionary as "A spicy sauce of chopped, usually uncooked, vegetables or fruit, especially tomatoes, onions, and chili peppers."

Salsa is one of the most enjoyable foods today, and goes with just about any dish you can serve. It's great with tortilla chips, of course, but also makes a wonderful accompaniment with grilled foods, beef, fish, chicken, pork, and as a side dish.

In this ebook I've included 80 delicious recipes. I focused on those that use only fresh ingredients, usually fruits and vegetables you can find at your local Farmer's Market, but I've also included a selection of recipes that have some cooking required, or that use canned or bottled products.

Some or the recipes under the Fresh Salsa section include Pico de Gallo, Fresh Tomatillo Salsa, Avocado Corn Salsa, Pumpkin Seed Salsa, Moroccan Fresh Tomato Salsa, and Green Tomato Salsa.

Under the section that includes salsas that have to be cooked, or include canned or bottled ingredients, I've given you Black Bean Salsa, Charred Tomato Mint Salsa, Grilled Pineapple and Mango Salsa, and Tangy Tomatillo Cumin Salsa, among others..

In the Fruit Salsa section, some of the selections are Mango Salsa, Cherry Salsa, Kiwi Serrano Salsa, Hawaiian Mango Salsa, Green Papaya Salsa, and Peach and Mango Salsa.

Not all 80 recipes are for salsas. I couldn't resist a small section (just 16 recipes) that I love and that go well when accompanied by salsa. In this section you will find a great recipe for Flour Tortillas, Indian Fry Bread, three great Guacamole Recipes, Hot Pepper Jelly, Pickled Jalapeno Pepper Slices, and Taco Seasoning. That just part of the list.

Meet the Author

I remember the first long story I ever wrote. I was in the third grade and my teacher, Miss Steere, asked us each to write a story about something in history. I chose to write about the Donner party and the tragedies that befell them as they tried to make it to the Wild West. I went on and on. I was having so much fun and making up stories about the people and conversations between them. It was like a game to me. It didn't occur to me that I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. I wasn't even old enough to understand what it meant to be grown up. Throughout school, whenever I had to write something, I always had a lot of fun with assignments. I remember writing about the Salem Witches when I was in high school and how exciting it was to make up "real" people who lived then and, unfortunately, also died. So what did I do when I was finally an adult? I worked as an accountant, secretary, draftsman of pre-fab metal buildings, I studied Criminal Justice and worked at the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department for a time. I ended up with a career as a paralegal. Well, that wasn't too bad. It encompassed a lot of research and writing and, in the meantime, I had actually written short stories, poetry, and two unpublished novels. I did have one non-fiction piece published in a magazine in the 80s. Yippee! When I lived in Hawaii, I even helped a famous Chef publish two cook books. Finally, I said "enough", quit everything, took early retirement, and moved to Morocco. Now, I am a writer. I love my life, and I hope you enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. I have a lot of fun with my characters and stories. To me, they are real people and my joy is sharing them with you and the rest of the world.

Reviewed by Kristie Ingerto for Readers' Favorite Salsa!: 80 Great Recipes! by Renee Benzaim, is a collection of recipes that will leave your mouth watering and will have you heading out of the door to run to your local farmer’s market. Benzaim begins with a brief introduction to describe what exactly salsa is as well as her own experience with salsa, including the many varieties, over the years. This cookbook is divided into four main sections. The first section is a collection of fresh salsa recipes, meaning that all the ingredients are fresh. The second section in the book is filled with various types of fruit salsas. The next section contains recipes that are cooked salsas or salsa that contains some canned or bottled ingredients. The last section is a group of Benzaim’s favorite recipes to accompany salsa, including a recipe for flour tortillas, varieties of guacamole, and taco seasoning, to name a few. Renee Benzaim has opened my eyes to the many varieties of salsa in her cookbook, Salsa!: 80 Great Recipes! I enjoy eating salsa often; however it is usually with the same types of food each time, such as tacos or tortilla chips. After opening up this cookbook, I feel as if I have so many things to try; not only salsa recipes that sound delicious and vary from the typical variety, but also foods to accompany salsa and be enjoyed together. My favorite feature of Benzaim’s cookbook is how the recipes are divided; this makes planning which recipe to make so much easier as it depends on the type of salsa one wishes to make and enjoy, not only the ingredients but the cooking style as well.
