Because salsas use fresh ingredients, they have a certain punch of their own.  Use oranges, pineapples, and mangoes to supply the intense yet sweet flavor.

Add some crunch.
Texture adds allure to salsa.  Add in some cool cucumbers, crisp red and green peppers, refreshing celery, zesty radishes, and nutty jicama to add a bit of crunch.

Balance with tartness.
Balance the sweetness of the fruit by using acidic ingredients, such as vinegars and tomatillos.  To invigorate and enhance the flavors of the other ingredients, add a little lime or lemond juice.

Spice it up.
Hot red peppers, smoky chipotles, onions, garlic and chili powder give salsa the zing that distinguishes it from a humdrum fruit salad.  With a little “heat,” the salsa becomes a flavorful condiment.

Serve and enjoy!
However you like it, tangy, hot, or sweet, salsa can complement almost any meal imaginable.
