I’m showing you this picture because it was around this time that it all began. My mom
helped me move to California 18 years ago and decided it was her turn to have some fun.
She sold her Mercedes, and bought a Harley so she could ride around the country. I
TOTALLY freaked out about this and of course did NOT approve of her doing
something that dangerous, but I was over 1,200 miles away and had no way to stop her –
talk about a role reversal! During this experimental (rebellious) phase of hers, she
decided to experiment with new recipes, like creating a salsa recipe of her own.
She thought it was time to make it the way she wanted it to taste… Fresh, not cooked. As
usual with anything my Mom cooks, the salsa recipe was a huge success. She started
making her salsa for parties she hosted, and her friends loved it so much, they started
asking if she would make it for them. Because my Mom is such a hospitable person, she
gladly began making salsa for her friends and soon realized it was getting pretty
expensive, and she was spending a lot of her free time making salsa – not to mention that
her friends told their friends who told their friends, and it was soon getting a little out of
hand (Believe me, once you’ve tried her salsa, or if you’ve already tried her salsa, you’ll
know that you just can’t get enough). As much as my Mom loves her friends, she realized
she was going to have to start charging them for salsa to recover her cost to make it and
decided it would be a seasonal project or something she could give as gifts to friends for
special occasions. At present, my Mom is going through a new phase where she’s tired of
looking at the four walls of her office and would rather spend all her time in a kitchen just
making salsa. Needless to say, she’s had several years to perfect this recipe since she’s
now way past her “mid-life crisis years” (Kidding Mom!), so we decided it’s time for her
to share her salsa with everybody. Now that you’ve heard our journey to this point, we
hope you enjoy our salsa as much as we do.
Made and marketed by two genuine Indian women… Native American that is.
