Our Story
When I moved to Melbourne with my Australian wife in 2006, we missed seeing fresh salsa at the local store. In the heart of California, Mexican food is integral to the community and salsa is a staple in the Mexican diet ... something that is found at every table at every meal, to be enjoyed. Inspired by my love for traditional Mexican food, I started making fresh salsa in my hometown in California over 10 years ago. A really great salsa is a fresh salsa, made from ripe tomatoes and real chillies, and over the years, I have adopted and perfected my own version of traditional salsa.
We set ourselves a mission to bring a little taste of California to Melbourne. We have sourced the best ingredients from our local area to bring you a real handmade fresh salsa that has no preservatives, no additives, no artificial colours and no artificial flavours.
Always fresh, always handmade, it is our pleasure to introduce California Style Fresh Salsa to you. Sound good? Our traditional fresh red salsa range is available in mild, medium or hot. We also make a traditional version of fresh salsa verde (green salsa), and our fresh guacamole is available in mild and spicy versions.
Salsa Ideas
Traditional salsa was originally used strictly with Mexican food such as tacos, burritos, enchiladas, huevos rancheros and as a dip for corn chips. Salsa has now become a popular condiment being used any place that a sauce such as tomato sauce would be used: on burgers, baked potatoes and other foods. Apart from adding a great fresh flavour to your meal, fresh salsa also adds an extra serving of fruit and vegetables. Use it wherever your creativity will allow.
Barbeque: A great compliment to BBQs, salsa can be used along side grilled foods such as steaks,which is great with hot salsa, and fish which goes well with mild salsa or salsa verde (green salsa). You can also add fresh ingredients to your salsa such as corn for variety.
Pasta: Add medium salsa to traditional red pasta sauce for a flavour twist, or add salsa verde to pesto sauce. Make a béchamel sauce with pasta, add salsa and toss as a secret ingredient.
Soup: For a rich flavourful stock, add salsa to soups, and casseroles.
Salad: Stir salsa into potato salad, chicken salad or tuna salad. Use salsa verde as a tangy salad dressing with a green salad.
Pizza: Use salsa as a base on your next homemade pizza.
