A salsa is a type of sauce and can vary in form. Some are more runny and can be poured over food whilst others are chunkier and served as relishes. They are often tomato based, with onions and chillies, but can include any fruit and veg. The most well known is probably the Mexican tomato salsa, which includes chilli, onion, coriander and lime.
