Ah, salsa. So seemingly simple and yet so incredibly versatile. Used to top scrambled eggs, grace a burger, dress a salad, and of course pair with chips, salsa can add a flavor and nutrition punch to so many dishes.

Here are our 5 favorite salsa recipes – perfect for summertime snacking, chip dipping or just scooping by the spoonful. We don’t judge.
