As the month of May comes to an end and the summer approaches, we know your calendars become flooded with holidays, pool parties and nights spent indoors just trying to stay cool.
You may be looking for an activity to do with Dad for Father’s Day, or thinking ‘what should I bring to that pool party next week’? Well, we have just the answer! It may spice things up and actually add heat, but salsa is the perfect contribution to any event!
Listed below are two delicious salsa recipes! One you may have already tasted, Sergio’s award winning Green Tomatillo Salsa, which is available at any Macayo’s.
