To be honest, I buy this salsa so frequently that I have a collection of drinking glasses up-cycled from the jars.
I even keep the labels on because they are so aesthetically pleasing (to me) and I dig promoting Trader Joe’s, even in my everyday beverage consumption.
To the point:
This salsa is unique to say the least. It is VERY similar to sweet pickle relish, substituting the pickles for corn (obviously). Unlike most traditional salsas, this one is very sweet and does not mimic the essence of salsa. I am not sure what is very salsa-ey about this …
With that said – it is very versatile. Just like sweet relish, I would encourage you to top a hotdog with it for a more chic bun-and-meat experience. For a less sodium packed treat, grab a bag of chips and generously scoop up this “salsa” for a crunchy and flavorful treat. There is both coriander and mustard seeds in this mixture that makes for a very bold statement in your mouth.
Overall, I would give this product a 7 to the less adventurous consumer and a 9 to the people with well versed pallets and general food interests.
