Tangy Salsa Recipe


Tangy Salsa derives its flavor from chopped vegetables’ juices along with sumac powder and chilli garlic oil . The sumac bush, native to the Middle East, produces deep red berries, which are dried and ground into coarse powder. It has a pleasant tangy taste with a hint of citrus fruitiness. Romans used sumac as souring agent before the introduction of lemons.

Serve Tangy Salsa with Nachos / Chips / Lavash Crackers.
