Salsa normally consists of diced tomatoes, onions, and various hot peppers. Its origins are probably from Mexico, but it is quite popular throughout North America.
It tastes mediocre on its own, but good to great when placed upon a tortilla chip (its most common pairing). Sometimes salsa can prove to be spicy and is often avoided by children, the elderly, and anyone from Northern Europe.
Salsa became an official snack on April 21st 2012.
