Both my husband and I were born and raised in the Central Valley in California. We both miss that area very much and of course we miss a few food items that you can only get their.
One of our favorite Salsa’s is from a restaurant called Bobby Salazar’s. You could get it from the restaurant or in the local grocery store. Ever since we moved from the valley we have not found a salsa that we have liked as much as this one.
As soon as I saw this pin floating around pinterest about a restaurant style salsa I thought that it looked very similar to our favorite. So of course I cruised on over to Mountain Mama Cooks and made her Quick and Easy Salsa recipe. I am a huge fan of this recipe. It lives up to its claim of being quick and easy and it is very similar to our favorite. This will be a keeper in our house and enjoyed many times from here on out.
