Consumer Search: Best Gourmet Salsa
Updated January 2008
In blind taste tests, salsa varieties by Desert Pepper Trading Co. are top-rated more often than any other brand. Reviewers are especially impressed by Desert Pepper’s sophisticated ingredients and blends of flavors (a particular favorite of gourmet publications is the Corn, Black Bean, Roasted Red Pepper variety). At $5 for a 16-oz. jar, however, Desert Pepper is significantly more expensive than highly rated salsa from Green Mountain Gringo and Pace, and not everyone is fond of flavors like raspberry chipotle or pineapple.
