Let me start by asking: what is the greatest condiment in the world?
If you said anything besides salsa I have to kindly tell you that you are wrong.
Living in the Southwest we have developed quite the taste for things that contain jalapeños, cumin, coriander, lime, cilantro, and any combination of the aforementioned spices. This is why the annual My Nana's Best Tasting Salsa Challenge is such a great date for us!
Plus there's all the "hot" puns the world can muster, so that definitely adds to the fun.
Basically you enter a park and there are tents everywhere with any kind of salsa you could dream of! There's tons of traditional stuff with a variety of ingredients and spice levels. But, we also had mango salsa, strawberry salsa, cucumber salsa, cinnamon honey salsa, avocado salsa, and many varieties of tomatillo salsa- a personal favorite.
I watched this man down the samples as fast as they could shell them out! He also went through four bags of chips- oh to be 6'1 with a metabolism of steel!
When we'd made our lap around the entire park Jacob remarked that his tray felt heavy. I laughed when I looked down, he didn't throw away a single cup while tasting, he just kept adding to the pile.
This is a sign of success- the man ate all these, and I only saw his eyes water and nose run once!
Such a lovely date, local festivals really are the best- particularly when they produce a smile like this!
