Red River Valley Fair to host salsa contestThe Red River Valley Fair will host a salsa contest at 1 p.m. July 15 in the Exhibits Building at the fairgrounds in West Fargo.
First- and second-place gift certificates to WF Maxwells and Café Mosaic will be given in each category. The overall winner will receive a gift certificate to a Mosaic cooking class worth $45.
Participants entering salsa must ensure the product is homemade. There will be four categories for amateur chefs: mild, hot, inferno and miscellaneous.
Salsa must be made from scratch by the entrant and submitted in a glass jar that measures at least one pint.
Entrants must include a typed recipe, and there can be no labels or markings on the jar or lid. Salsa can be shown either fresh or canned.
The products will be judged on flavor, consistency, balance of flavors and appearance.
