The more i read, the more i got hooked onto new cuisines and new ways of eating a fruit or vegetable. As much as i like masaledar curries and piping hot steamed rice, i am also a big sucker for fresh vegetables and fruits in the form of a smoothie or salad. And my new found love, salsa. Not so long ago, salsa was either swaying your hips to a peppy number or some tomatoes and peppers in a tangy dressing. And then salsa too evolved. It evolved so much that it was at once, fashionable to make a stone fruit salsa. I call it the food in vogue syndrome. Well.Gladly, salsa dint consume me even then, Actually, salsa became an obsession only now. Like in the past few weeks. First, i made this watermelon salsa. And now, i found my soul salsa in this mango salsa. And no, i have not made tomato salsa. Not yet. Maybe its too soon for that. (wink wink)
