Just got back from the Juvenile Diabetes Walk for the Cure fundraiser and among the many generous sponsors offering free samples and food items there was a new Salsa from a company in Kamloops called "Fresh is Best Salsa & Company"

I was just about to walk by them, as I really don't care for store bought salsa finding it's often too sweet and preferring to make my own, but this stuff was fabulous!

Give it a try and support a small local company - their info sheet said it’s available at Overwaitea, Save On Foods, Coopers Foods and Safeway.

And no, they are not my client... :biggrin:

Hi Shelora, it was nice and tangy, clearly had some fresh lime or lemon - I liked how fresh tasting it was. Chunky, but not so much that it was hard to eat on a chip. It was a traditional salsa with fresh tomatoes, onion, a bit of cilantro but I didn't examine it as I was walking away from the table when I ate it. It was not “hot” with garlic, as I have found some of the fresh made salsa in the plastic tubs and it didn't have corn or black beans in it, which many jarred brands seem to.

I also like that it was a locally made product, similarly to a pasta sauce line that I pick up when I am in Oliver at the Golden Mile Fruit stand - made in Oliver by a woman. Again I like to make my own pasta sauce from scratch but this one (which name momentarily escapes me) (darn, I can picture the label too, brain fart!) is so good that I usually buy a case when I am up there. The pomodoro sauce is particularly fabulous.

Thanks, woman.
