Salsa is something we spend a lot of time thinking about. One of the things we think about is different ways people can enjoy our delicious salsas. Since our salsas are made from farm fresh ingredients, they have some health benefits you simply won’t find in other dips or condiments. Specifically, our salsas are low calorie, fat-free and don’t have any sugar added. They’re also naturally packed with Vitamins A and C, along with being low in sodium. And as you may have guessed, they’re vegetarian and vegan-friendly. Because we’re very proud of the fact that we’re able to offer something that’s both healthy and delicious, we want to highlight five different ways to make the most of those traits of our salsas: Marinade When people think of marinade, meat is often the first thing that comes to mind. And while our salsa is a great way to add flavor to any meat you may enjoy, marinade also works great for both grilled fish and veggies. Given that many of the marinades you’ll find on store shelves are packed with sugar and/or fat, any of our three salsas will be much healthier. Salad Dressing Of all the options we’re covering, this may be the simplest but most effective healthy use of salsa. The next time you make a salad, skip reaching for a bottle of dressing and instead spoon some salsa on top. Your taste buds and the rest of your body will thank you for doing so! Soup Base While tomato soup is delicious any time of the year, it’s especially tasty when the weather outside is cold. Unfortunately, many of the canned options on store shelves are packed with sodium and other preservatives. If you want to make this type of soup from scratch but are worried that the process is going to take too long, using salsa to kickstart the base of your soup is a great way to reduce the prep time required while simultaneously adding some serious flavor! Guacamole Want to whip up some guacamole that tastes just as good as anything you’d find at a restaurant? All you need is one of our salsas, a couple of avocados, and a little lime juice. Mix them together, add pepper to taste and serve with your favorite brand of tortilla chips. Marinara or Cocktail Sauce Substitute If you want to add some heat to your pizza or pasta, using our InCindyary salsa in place of marinara will do the trick. And if you like shrimp cocktail but aren’t always crazy about the flavor of horseradish, substitute salsa in its place for a different flavor that still packs a punch. We hope you’re inspired to try one of these delicious ideas in your home!
