Summer is the season for festivities -- and that likely means salsa. Lots and lots of salsa. We couldn't let you head into the summer holidays without having a wide range of recipes at your fingertips. These salsa and guacamole recipes range from classic favorites to unusual stand-outs. A bonus (and not unusual among salsa recipes) is that all of these recipes are vegan!
