Salsa has always been a favorite in my house, along with potato salad.
My children were never really a big fan of tomatoes but always wanted me to make salsa.
Go figure that out..but anyway I just rolled with it and kept making the salsa.
And with that in mind I thought I really needed to find a way to marry the two together.
By George, salsa and potatoes together are just the perfect companions. Haha!
But seriously give this one a go, and make sure to use fresh salsa.
You could use the jarred stuff but not sure it would be as flavorful. Cause fresh is just always better!
