18 sweet and savory salsa recipes for Cinco de Mayo

I cannot believe this week is Cinco de Mayo celebration! I am SOOO excited! I will be actually partying this week with a new #TwitterParty with Avocados from Mexico on Friday – Join the #GuacIt #gno Twitter party on 5/5 (1-3 pm ET) to celebrate Cinco de Mayo! http://bit.ly/2oNQZzn. I got so inspired, I want to make a celebration menu, and include a few options for salsa recipes.

Have you seen my 28 best avocado recipes I have compiled a few months ago? This will be super useful for this weekend if you are going to throw a Cinco de Mayo party at home and would like to try out a few new avocado recipes.

Today I wanted to think about some new salsa ideas for what to make for this weekend. I have a few recipes that I usually make that are pretty simple and traditional for our family – I will share them some time on this blog. But today I wanted to get some inspiration from my fellow food bloggers to get their ideas of what they recommend to make.

When you go through the recipes you will notice a slight desserty slant to it – I am not sure why that is exactly. It could be because I have a sweet tooth. It might be because I am always craving some new dessert ideas. Another reason I am thinking – salsa usually includes tomatoes which are fruits, so switching tomatoes for some other fruits is a natural progression of this recipe, I suppose, and it works oh so well! You absolutely have to try these recipes using some of your favorite fruits, and there are also maybe a few new recipes to try to improve on your regular salsa that you are used to making.

I almost forgot – I actually do have one recipe of Blueberry Salsa that I published on the blog before served with Blueberry marinated steak – this dish is amazing! I hope you enjoy these, and the other recipes I have got here, and make sure to scroll to the very bottom for a sweet surprise!
