Have you ever heard of Dry Salsa? If not, welcome to your newest obsession! I hadn’t heard of it until my friends over at Vitacost introduced me to it. I loved the concept so much I decided to create my own version of it. It’s basically a bunch of seeds, dry chilies and a touch of oil to keep it together. Some versions also include peanuts or nuts but I decided to keep mine nut free. I just used pumpkin seeds, sesame and sunflower seeds. You can also add in spices or other flavors to make different versions. I’m thinking of doing a lime one soon and have a few other ones in the queue.
When I did a search for dry salsa, I only found a few links and one of them was for a company named Salacious making it from scratch and selling it at The farmer’s markets in L.A. If you don’t want to make it yourself you could order it from them, theirs sounds amazing! If not, you can always just DIY it as it’s super simple to make and tailor to your liking. You can find the recipe I created for Vitacost right HERE!
It’s a really awesome condiment to have on hand to spice things up and add a bit of heat and umami to any dish! I love it on tacos and what’s great is it adds that punch of flavor but won’t leave your taco soggy, cool right?! it’s also great for breakfast on top of your eggs and as a dip with chips adding in some more crunch and perfect heat! I picked up all of my ingredients at Vitacost, they make it SO easy to keep my pantry stocked with healthy products and ingredients! Plus they carry tons of Paleo and Whole 30 products that I love! I hope you enjoy the recipe and if you make it don’t forget to share it with me on Instagram. Just use the hashtag #paleopaparazzi so I don’t miss your creation!
