EatingWell Taste Test: Salsas Worth Scooping
Taste Test: top 6 salsas for summer.
Salsas Worth Scooping
Most of you have a jar (or three…) of salsa in your refrigerator; it’s been several years since salsa sales (in dollars) surpassed ketchup. And since you can find just about anything in jarred salsas these days, odds are you’ll find a combination you really like. To put our test on even ground, we limited the field to plain, mild tomato salsa. Even that narrow classification left us testing more than 40 salsas to find our top 6.
Then we summoned our latest tasting panel, a group of six salsa fanatics: Robert, Robin and Ainaka, who usually go for sweeter fruit salsas; Teresa, who usually adds interest to purchased salsa with avocados or more spice; Victor, a spicy-salsa lover; and Meghan, who loves any and all salsas. Here’s what they had to say about their top three picks.
