Homemade salsa is a quick and easy way to jazz up any meal, and the ingredient possibilities go far beyond tomato and onion. With a myriad of sweet fruits or crunchy vegetables to choose from, you can make a new salsa every night of the week. Use your homemade salsa to top grilled meat or fish, scoop a spoonful into a bowl of rice and add a fried egg for an easy meal, or use a spoonful to spruce up a simple cheese quesadilla.. Here are six new fun salsa flavors to get your creative salsa juices flowing!

For the past five years, Beth has been dishing out healthy, inexpensive recipes and teaching kitchen basics through her popular blog, Budget Bytes and the corresponding cookbook, Budget Bytes – Over 100 Easy Delicious Recipes to Slash Your Grocery Bill in Half.
