If you’re serving beer on game day but are still craving your favorite cocktail, look no further than these adults-only salsas. They’re inspired by mixed-drink classics like bloody marys and martinis and make a perfect pairing with the best brews. Food Network Kitchen even came up with the perfect dipper for each, like serving celery sticks instead of tortilla chips with a Bloody Mary Guajillo Salsa.
When you’re thinking of appetizers to serve Labor Day weekend or just any barbecue, don’t forget to include salsa and chips. While jarred salsa can be boring, try a homemade version packed with tomatoes, garlic and cilantro. Giada incorporates orange juice in her recipe, which gives it a burst of citrus.
