SimplyFresco Salsa…mmm, yum! Review & #Recipe too!

Hooray!  I’m excited to introduce you to a local San Antonio company today!

SimplyFresco was founded in December 2005 by   Ricardo Rodriguez and Michael Kennedy.   From its inception, SimplyFresco has undertaken a pioneering effort to produce the very best refrigerated Mexican Salsa and Italian Pasta Sauce available in the retail market. In order to deliver the ultimate in all-natural freshness, SimplyFresco uses High Pressure Processing as the foundation for their production. The investment in this technology allows us to produce a line of products that retain their fresh taste, bright colors, crisp texture, and healthy nutrients without giving up long-lasting freshness. At SimplyFresco, we are passionate about producing the highest quality pasta sauce and salsa available while achieving superior customer satisfaction. 

I got to try the SimplyFresco Traditional Red Salsa in mild and medium.  I’m a big fan of spice so the medium salsa was for me and I reserved the mild for my pansy spice sensitive husband.  The salsa was wonderfully fresh tasting.  I loved that it didn’t have any of the added sugar and preservatives that most store bought salsa has.  I (who, by nature am a very picky eater) thought it was a little heavy on the garlic, but The Husband thought it was just fine.

The SimplyFresco salsas are perfect for dipping, pouring atop delish dinners like taco salad, or using in a recipe.

You can find SimplyFresco salsas in the chilled produce area of your local grocer. If you can’t find SimplyFresco don’t be alarmed, SimplyFresco salsas are often go incognito as a store brand salsa. 😉

Here is one of my favorite recipes to use SimplyFresco in…
