5 Fast & Easy Summer Salsas

With summer underway, I’m sure your BBQ is getting as much use as mine is with grilled meats, fish and veggies always making appearances at the dinner table.  One of my favorite dishes to bring to a BBQ or dinner party during the summer is a fresh salsa – they’re fast, tasty, and extremely versatile!  Plus, making them from scratch with fresh summer produce means you’re getting more of your fruits and vegetables servings, and as a bonus, salsas usually tend to be kid-friendly if you nix any added spiciness from jalapeno peppers.  I love these salsas because they can be added to grilled chicken, pork, or beef, served atop grilled fish, or even incorporated as an appetizer with crackers.  Enjoy!
