Snacking Playbook: Super Salsa & More DLM Faves

“We strive to cultivate passion for the history and flavor of great food from around the world.” That’s one of my favorite lines from Dorothy Lane Market’s mission statement, and it certainly applies to our freshly made salsa available in our Produce department. Whether it’s Taco Tuesday or a game day party with friends, DLM Fresh Salsa is a must-have (don’t forget the DLM White Corn Tortilla Chips and cold beer to go with it).

We use the freshest ingredients possible and local produce when available. Dicing each tomato by hand and chopping cilantro daily releases fantastic aromas in the store for all to enjoy. We feature seasonal salsa in addition to staples, like these. All of these are made fresh daily and free of preservatives, so enjoy them by the sell by date or the following day:

  • DLM All-Natural Mild Salsa offers a wonderful combination of tomatoes, cilantro, white onions, jalapeño peppers (sans the heat source), garlic, lime juice, sea salt, pepper, cumin, and of course Vera Jane’s Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, named after my great-grandma. This treat will be a hit, especially after a QB throws a 50-yard touchdown!
  • DLM Black Bean and Corn Salsa certainly offers an explosion of flavor! This delightful salsa merges black beans, corn, tomatoes, red onion, freshly chopped cilantro, jalapeño, lime juice, sea salt, and pepper. It’s a personal favorite of mine, especially when you combine it with a little sour cream and shredded cheese. When your favorite running back comes in with the game-winning touchdown, make sure your DLM Black Bean and Corn Salsa is close by!
  • DLM Fresh Guacamole is always a crowd favorite and the same care is taken as it is made fresh daily by us. It features a wonderful combination of onions, jalapenos, cilantro, tomatoes, garlic, and avocados.
