Salsa Loving

by HEAB on March 3, 2010

Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

Not too long ago, Kristin wrote up a review of Don Sabrosa’s salsas, and she was kind enough to pass my name onto Don himself. Don then sent me a box of his yummy salsas to review on HEAB. Thanks Kristin and Don!

Don sent us all 3 of his flavors in both hot and mild. I’m not a super spicy girl, and so I immediately busted open the mild jars.

First up, I tried his Blueberries Peaches & Honey as well as the Black Bean and Corn flavors over an egg and bacon stir-fry.

Both salsas were delicious. I love the chunks of black beans and corn, and both were the perfect amount of spice. After I was done eating, I had some dessert… which consisted of eating Don’s Blueberries Peaches & Honey flavored salsa straight from the jar. It’s the perfect combo of savory & sweet. Definitely my favorite Don!

I saved the Roasted Garlic flavor for dinner so that both CD and I could have garlic breath.

I ate the salsa over veggies with a sprinkle of nutritional yeast. CD ate it over veggies and grass fed burgers. Between the two of us, we ate this much of the jar in one meal…

Ha ha, I’d say we liked it. :)

Yesterday, I ate more of the Blueberries Peaches & Honey salsa over a spinach cream cheese filled omelet, with bacon and leftover roasted Brussels sprouts on the side. Again, this one is my favorite. It does contain sugar, but not a lot.

I love salsa, but I often forget about this versatile condiment. It makes a great topping for salads, veggies, eggs, etc., and I love blending it with a chopped avocado for instant guacamole or stirring it together with a little hummus. Tell me, what is your favorite use for salsa?

Many thanks again to Don Sabrosa Salsa for sending me samples of your delicious all natural and very fresh tasting products. For more information on the company or to order some salsa for yourself, please click here…make sure to order lots of the Blueberries Peaches & Honey!

Salsa is really one of the best condiments around; those sound fantastic!
Everytime I read a post of yours, I get an insatiable craving for bacon. I better stop reading or find me a hog sometime soon, haha.

Heather (Heather's Dish) March 3, 2010 at 9:27 am

one of my favorite uses for salsa is to go in easy guacamole…soooooo good (if you get the right salsa that is!) and for huevos rancheros!

jacobc March 3, 2010 at 9:36 am

Woah, that looks good!
I’m with you, even the mild is to spicy for me! Give me the sweet stuff!
Blueberry peaches and honey?- different, but that does sound like a great idea for salsa!

Angharad March 3, 2010 at 9:42 am

Ohhhh salsa, you make the world go round. Love the look of that bacon and egg stir fry by the way. Drool.

Heather @ Get Healthy With Heathee March 3, 2010 at 9:54 am

I love topping salads with salsa! I usually go for the mild but lately I’ve been having a peach and habanero medium salsa. It’s definately got a kick to it!

Jenn March 3, 2010 at 9:55 am

SALSA ROCKS!!!!! Love it spice and love it sweet. It has saved me when I was leaning out for competitions because it can turn the blandest of food into a party in my mouth.

Now blueberry salsa…my first reaction is WTH but your food always looks so delicious, I think it would definitely be worth the try!

Katie March 3, 2010 at 10:15 am

Blueberries peaches and honey? Yum. I can eat a jar of salsa on my own, and I put it on everything. I see chips as more of a vehicle to get the salsa into my mouth. Sometimes I think I should just use a spoon. But that might look a little weird.

simplyshaka March 3, 2010 at 10:22 am

I love salsa and use it on pretty much everything. I love the Blueberries Peaches & Honey idea –I’ve had peach salsa before but never with blueberry or honey mixed in!

Carolyn March 3, 2010 at 11:08 am

oooh spinach omelet with cream cheese inside.. Making a note on that one.. looks yummy…!!!

colorful food day Heather… :-)

Serena March 3, 2010 at 11:13 am

I love salsa :) I need to find some peach salsa, it keeps popping up in recipes…never had it before, either :P

Mara @ What's For Dinner? March 3, 2010 at 11:14 am

YUM!!! I love a good salsa and am such a snot about jarred stuff…it has to be REALLY good for me to like it!
So whats your thoughts on nutritional yeast? Do you actually LIKE it or eat it because its good for you?

Heather Eats Almond Butter March 3, 2010 at 11:18 am

Mara, I only eat food that taste good, and I LOVE nooch. Very nutty and cheesy. Makes me happy. Try it in the cashew cheese sauce in this post. I think you might love: http://heathereatsalmondbutter.com/2008/12/22/ode-to-my-vita-mix/

Heather March 3, 2010 at 11:15 am

Blueberry & Peach salsa? That sounds so good…I can just think of all the things that’d taste amazing on…including by the spoonful :)

Jessica @ How Sweet March 3, 2010 at 11:19 am

I LOVE salsas and those sound amazing. There is a company in Northern Michigan called American Spoon, and they have amazing preserves, salsa, etc. They have peach and it is so good. Their stuff is pretty natural most of the time, too!

Christie @ Honoring Health March 3, 2010 at 11:20 am

Yum! I love salsa and put it on everything!

katherine March 3, 2010 at 11:22 am

I adore salsa and need some more in my life! It took a long time for me to come around to the whole salsa+eggs thing, but it’s definitely a keeper and it sounds like these would be great flavors to try.

Anna March 3, 2010 at 11:25 am

What fun flavors!!! I love salsas that combine spicy and sweet!

Kelly March 3, 2010 at 11:37 am

I love salsa. I could literally just get a spoon and a jar and go to town! :)

Ameena March 3, 2010 at 11:41 am

Salsa is one of my most favorite things! Who needs salad dressing when salsa does the job better every time!

I am loving the blueberry salsa!

theprocessofhealing March 3, 2010 at 11:43 am

Oh yum… blueberry, peaches, and honey sounds awesome!!!!

I like salsa mixed with guacamole on top of a salad..yum!

The Foodie Diaries March 3, 2010 at 11:44 am

Im sort of a salsa addict. As in, I’ve definitely been known to kill a jar (without the the help of a boy) in a day, or a meal. Whatever, no such thang as too much tamater. That blueberry one… GAH! I feel like I’d get addicted…

Lauren @ Eater not a runner March 3, 2010 at 11:56 am

Blueberry, peaches and honey sounds RIGHT up my alley!

Lindsay March 3, 2010 at 12:07 pm

Love that salsa! Peach Habenaro is a staple salsa in our house.

brandi March 3, 2010 at 12:23 pm

blueberry peach honey salsa? That sounds ridiculously good! What a great flavor combination.

Janet (Pantry Bites) March 3, 2010 at 12:29 pm

Salsa works really well with a bit of tomato sauce as a Mexican pizza topping.

Heather March 3, 2010 at 12:29 pm

I don’t usually order food online but blueberry, peach & honey salsa sounds too good to ignore! 3 jars are coming my way :)

Heather Eats Almond Butter March 3, 2010 at 12:34 pm

Heather, you will LOVE it!

sreade March 3, 2010 at 12:51 pm

I love salsa on my eggs and have been known to eat the stuff straight from the jar too :)

Betherann March 3, 2010 at 1:54 pm

I am totally intrigued by the blueberry salsa! Too bad I’m broke. :( (Okay, not broke, but not independently wealthy enough to order salsa online…) Salsa is a favorite of mine, too. I mix it with yogurt and use it as a dip for tortilla chips (um, like I did for lunch today…watch the blog tomorrow lol). Also, if you blend salsa with a tub of cream cheese it’s amazing. I’ve used fat free, but I bet whipped would add even more creaminess.

Heather Eats Almond Butter March 3, 2010 at 3:18 pm

Betherann, Yes, I bet it would be amazing with the whipped cream cheese. Good call!

eatmovelove March 3, 2010 at 1:56 pm

I could keep Salsa and spaghetti sauce companies alive with my purchases alone – it’s insane! I use it on EVERYTHING!!!!

plamarie March 3, 2010 at 2:09 pm

I am loving your salsas! I like to mix salsa and sour cream or greek yogurt and use for a salad dressing, on eggs, in hummus, and on pizza!

Carbzilla March 3, 2010 at 3:35 pm

Love the sugar shout out, Seniorita!

When I was growing up, one of the “quick, trendy” appetizers was a brick of cream cheese with salsa poured over it – maybe we’ll be bringing it back into fashion!

Carbzilla March 3, 2010 at 3:36 pm

Let me add that you would then spread it on Triscuits…….sounded weird as an app all by itself, der.

Heather Eats Almond Butter March 3, 2010 at 3:39 pm

Carbzilla, I don’t know – I could do some damage on a block of cream cheese + salsa with nothing but a fork. :)

jaclyn@todayslady March 3, 2010 at 3:45 pm

Mmmm blueberry and peach salsa! My favorite way to eat salsa is pretty typical, with mexican type food! But I ALWAYS add some cilantro to jarred salsa, it makes it taste so fresh!

April March 3, 2010 at 4:20 pm

I won Kristin’s giveaway and I got my salsa Monday. I swear i’ve eaten half of one of those jars already. I usually can’t do salsa because of the sodium bloat. This stuff rocks!

Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) March 3, 2010 at 4:42 pm

I LOVE salsa, but I am a spicy girl! My favorite way to eat it is on omelets. So good and I can go through an entire jar in one sitting! I just thought of you…I have broccoli roasting in the oven to cover up the meat smell! I totally trumped my husband’s pork that roasted all day! It really stinks, but it is so good. I put coconut oil on it for the first time too. You would be proud!

Danielle March 3, 2010 at 4:45 pm

I love salsa on anything….a good black bean and corn salsa makes a great veggie/chip dipper, topping for eggs, and salad dressing!

Shannon March 3, 2010 at 4:50 pm

i love mixing it with hummus for a salad dressing, or putting it on eggs or oats :) yum, now i’m craving salsa…

mrssturgis March 3, 2010 at 5:13 pm

Heather, your food porn is so pleasing.

BroccoliHut March 3, 2010 at 5:36 pm

AH man, as a girl who routinely eats salsa straight-up with a spoon, I am so psyched about these flavors! Thanks for the info.

Samantha March 3, 2010 at 5:52 pm

Must try those salsa. Fingers crossed Don ships here! Blueberries and peaches together can’t be wrong!

Chelsea Ward March 3, 2010 at 8:35 pm

This whole post made me think of the Jerry Seinfield bit where he’s talking about salsa and how people love saying the word. Haha.

Anywho, you really know how to work a bottle of salsa. I’m impressed by the delicious variety of ways you incorporated the nummy condiment into all of your eats!

Pure2Raw twins March 3, 2010 at 9:01 pm

Yum roasted garlic salsa sounds right up our alley. Love anything with garlic in it ;)

Molly March 3, 2010 at 9:05 pm

oh girl I love salsa as well. I actually poured some over my veggies tonight too!

Sarah March 3, 2010 at 9:28 pm

I love salsa!! I’ve always used it as dressing but I’m a spice wimp so I rock the mild. The roasted garlic sounds yummy :) I love garlic even if it makes me smelly!

Jess March 3, 2010 at 9:38 pm

I love salsas!!!! I can eat it with just about anything : ) That Blueberris Peaches & Honey sounds AMAZING!

Deb (SmoothieGirlEatsToo) March 3, 2010 at 10:32 pm

salsa is the best cheat ever. If you are desperate for a tomato sauce-= boom there you go!

ilanalala March 4, 2010 at 10:14 am

looooooooooove salsa. my current obsessing is mixing salsa with tehina for a creamy/spicy dip … it goes on EVERYTHING.

Bekah March 4, 2010 at 10:02 pm
