Every country has their own way of topping off their favorite foods. In the Netherlands, you can’t eat fries without a side of mayonnaise. The French are known for their fine varieties of mustard, and the British like to shake a little malt vinegar on their fish and chips. India is known for chutneys, and soy sauce is the condiment of choice in many Asian cuisines. But which condiment is the most popular in the United States?
If you guessed ketchup, you’re dead wrong. Barbecue sauce has been beaten, too, and even ranch dressing doesn’t come out on top. The best-selling condiment in America in terms of annual sales is salsa. Every year, Americans buy more than $460 million worth of salsa, consuming it on everything from chips to tacos to eggs. Salsa first began to outsell ketchup back in 1992 but many people still fail to appreciate just how popular the spicy sauce has become.
Salsa, of course, did not originate in the United States. Salsa is the Spanish word for “sauce” and is traditionally used to describe all types of sauce-like condiments used in cuisine. Today, we typically only call red and green sauces with tomato or tomatillo bases “salsa.” There are many different ways to prepare salsa, though many recipes use chili powder, chiles and cilantro as seasonings and flavorings.
