I’ve written a bit about salsas, and butternut squash, too. But never would I have thought about combining the two. That is until I visited Tocabe: A Native American Eatery here in Denver.

The topic of salsa has come up a couple times lately. First a friend asked me what store-bought salsa I recommended and I had nothing. (Saucy Dipper fail!)

Well, I’m tired, hot, hungry, PREGNANT, and irritated by the fact that I can never find the pita chips I’m looking for when I’m at the store. Are… Continue reading Even the Wrong Dippers Make this Cherry Salsa Taste Right

Now, I’m not one to brag, especially since the following recipe isn’t really mine. I found inspiration on the Whole Foods website.

Most of the time I prefer a smooth dip over a salsa, but on a hot night not too long ago I got a hankering for a fruit salsa that couldn’t be denied.
