Chill With This Easy-to-Make Salsa

For wine lovers, summer is the season for salsa, because it gives us an excuse (as if we needed one!) to pour something cold and bubbly… like a good Spanish Cava, an Italian Prosecco, or even a fine French Champagne.

This dish, courtesy of the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, delivers an abundance of flavor. And in case you’re not in the mood for cooking tonight, this recipe is easy to execute.
