Pass the Salsa, L.A.

Support Provided By

In Los Angeles, salsa is not just a condiment. Here, salsa is king. Spicy, hot, mild, pico de gallo, pineapple, double-roasted, corn, guacamole, red sauce, green sauce, black sauce, wild sauce, chipotle, mango... and on and on and on. There are more varieties of salsa within a stone throw's of your apartment than there are stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. So today, on our designated day of celebration for National Salsa Month, we bring out salsa's glory through all its incarnations.
