When dining at a good Mexican restaurant, they’ll always bring chips and salsa to the table. If you’ve ever wondered how to determine a good salsa, here we share our insight on the two important factors to consider.
Taste and texture
Some Mexican restaurants serve salsa that is chopped, with diced onion, tomato and jalapeños delivering a crisp and chunky texture. Other places may blend their salsa so the flavor remains but with a smooth finish. Both are fine – the important aspect is that the ingredients look and taste fresh and not wilted.
Table salsa is usually served mild to medium, but good authentic Mexican restaurants will offer spicier salsas or hot sauces for the table.
