Santa Barbara Salsa

My sister Alyssa visited me in Los Angeles over her Thanksgiving break from college, and we had a great time.  I'll be doing more posts about her visit and the gluten free places I took her around the city, but for now a quick post about a great gluten free product available online and at your local grocer.

When we were deciding what to prepare for Thanksgiving, we knew turkey would not be on the menu.  We decided to make a traditional California thanksgiving -- tacos!

We made fresh guacamole, a delicious mix of black beans, red peppers, and tomatoes, and found a great, gluten free salsa to place on the tacos.  It's Santa Barbara Salsa and, you guessed it, is made near Santa Barbara here in California.  We picked up our Santa Barbara Salsa at the Pavilions here in West Hollywood.

The best part?  All products are labeled gluten free (if they are gluten free)!  I haven't seen the pestos on shelves, so I can't confirm that they are gluten free.  It does say on the company's website that all of their products are gluten free, but look for the handy "Gluten Free" before purchasing.  Santa Barbara Salsa makes fresh salsas, shelf-stable salsas, pepper sauces, and pestos to go along with gluten free bruschetta.

Do you love it or do you love it?
