Entertaining has always been a rewarding experience for me and my family and is a special part of my Cape Cod lifestyle. I have enjoyed living on Cape Cod for over 25 years with friends and family after moving here from Puerto Rico.
As an American of Puerto Rican descent, I have a deep love for my Hispanic heritage. It has given me a wealth of experience to draw from in marketing my homemade salsa dip which bursts with flavor like no other salsa dip in the American marketplace. With an exotic blend of Caribbean spices and herbs, my salsa dip will delight your palette as it has done for my family and friends for so many years. Cape Cod salsa dip is all-natural with no artificial ingredients. It merges a tasty blend of tomatoes, garlic, cilantro and other flavorful herbs and spices. And of course, brings the consumer lots of love.
The blend of aromas in Cape Cod Salsa Dip is a timeless reminder of my memories as a young girl. I remember the aromas of my mother’s herb garden in my hometown in San Lorenzo, Puerto Rico after a rainfall. Eating a spoonful of our dip on a cracker or vegetable slice was so delicious and aromatic and still is.. My mother Carmen had a very special love and warmth for cooking and entertaining and this love has now become a very special part of my own cooking. Carmen had a special gift of generating the most delicious flavors out of very small quantities of herbs and spices. This unique Puerto Rican cooking style is called “comida criolla”.
“Comida Criolla” is a combination of flavors and ingredients passed on from generation to generation amongst the different ethnic groups of Puerto Rico -groups that include Spanish, African, Indian and North American traditions. The well-known “sofrito” is drawn from these culinary traditions and has become a central part of Puerto Rican cuisine and culture. As my mother used to say, Sofrito is the base of all Puerto Rican cooking and especially so in our favorite Salsa Dip recipes experienced by locales in the towns of Forestdale and Sandwich, Mass. Enjoy the dish with me as it has became a special tribute to my mother’s love for Caribbean cuisine and to the enchanting beauty of Cape Cod.
