Product Description

From Booklist

Since salsa has replaced ketchup as America's number-one condiment, Coyote Cafe chef Miller, with accomplices, introduces even more of this kind of side dish. In 100 recipes, salsas are ranked 0-to-10 on a mild-to-hot scale, and incorporate a variety of backyard and exotic ingredients. Each includes fairly simple cooking instructions, serving suggestions, and variations. Barbara Jacobs

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique and delicious recipes. Nov. 1 2001
By John
This has some excellent salsa recipes. I have tried several and have been very pleased with the results. The instructions are clear and there are color photographs of each of the dishes. However, if you're expecting recipes for traditional, tomato-based salsas, like you find in the stores and restaurants, you may be a little disappointed. Most of the book describes "salsas" that are fruit, meat, seafood, or vegetable based.
I do have a complaint about the book format. It is tall and not very wide, the cover is thick and the binding is very tight. It's not the kind of book that you can lay flat to refer to while you're preparing the dish. Luckily, most of the recipes are very short and simple so you won't be referring back to the book very often. One final nitpick - I wish they had included more information on the various ingredients. They provide some, but I had not heard of some of them and it would have been nice to read about them. Other salsa books I have read provide this information. Despite these negative comments, I can recommend this book to anyone looking for some unique recipes to spice up the meals and parties.

5.0 out of 5 stars The title says it all! Aug. 10 2001
This salsa cookbook by Coyote Cafe's Mark Miller contains 100 recipes. I've earmarked 21 that I want to try as soon as possible. There is a photograph for every recipe (browsing for recipes in this book is a VERY appetizing experience). The book devotes a chapter to each of the following types of salsas: tomato/tomatillo, chile, tropical, fruit, corn, bean, garden, nut/seeds/herbs, seafood and exotic salsas. Some of the "salsas" look more like side dishes or salads, but who cares what it's called as long as it tastes good. Some of the recipes call for some pretty exotic ingredients. Fortunately, Miller includes a mail order list in the appendix. Two especially nice features of this book are a 0 to 10 heat scale and serving suggestions for each recipe.
Miller's tomatillo salsa verde is the best I've ever tasted and it only takes 5 minutes to toss together in the blender. My four year-old ate an entire bowl of melon salsa thinking it was a fruit salad. I just bought 5 copies of this neat little cookbook to distribute among my relatives this Christmas. If you like salsa, try this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars MIxing up salsa July 5 2004
Salsa anyone? THE GREAT SALSA BOOK by Mark Miller is all about salsa. If he wanted to be cute, he could have titled his book, "Everything you wanted to know..." and not have been far off the mark. Miller's book includes over one hundred pages of salsa recipes: Tomato and Tomatillo salsas; Chile salsas; Topical salsas (Tropical mango salsa and Mango mash); Fruit salsas (Apple Pasado Salsa, Moroccan Date Salsaa0; Corn and Bean salsas; Nut, seed and herb salsas; and plenty of other exotic salsas. So you see, salsa isn't just that stuff you get at the Taco bar.
As I am trying to eat more vegetables, I find the 'Grilled Vegetable Salsa' with chiles, eggplants, shiake mushrooms, zucchini squash, and asparagus, most appealing. Or, if you want something sweet as well as colorful, try is the sweet potato and pecan salsa with maple syrup and cranberries. Miller includes color photos of all his prepared dishes. This is truly a great salsa book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of tasty salsa recipes to enjoy! April 13 2002
This colorful cookbook has photos for every recipe! The recipes are in a simple format easy to follow with a photo showing how it should look when finished. There are a wide variety of recipes including tomato, chile, tropical, fruit, corn, bean, garden, nut/seed/herb, ocean & exotic salsas to choose from. In the back of the cookbook there is a helpful conversion chart, sources for ingredients, a glossary of terms, and cooking technique explanations. I highly recommend adding this book to your cookbook collection. Your friends & family will love all the recipes! :)

Great pictures and easy to follow recipes that take about 10-20 minutes. Full of all different varieties of salsas (veggie, corn, bean, nut, seafood, & exotic). The most helpful part is list after the recipe telling you what type of food your salsa would go well with. I bought the book last week and have made 3 different salsas already. I even bought a second copy to give to a friend.
