Vendor: Halcyon Salsa
Fresh, refrigerated salsas - mild, hot, and avocado corn.
Halcyon (Hal-See-Yon) Salsa started in the kitchen of Kevin Mackey about a decade ago. Over time, the recipes he used to cook with (and eat while cooking) became honed to the perfect blends you taste today. Always fresh and never canned, we offer mild, hot, and avocado/corn salsas and occasionally mix in some special batches of tomatillo and even candy salsas. All natural, vegan, and no sugars added, it's the healthy snack and ingredient you've been looking for!
I went to the University of Dayton for undergrad and while there, I studied abroad for the first time in 2006 in Rome. Our apartment had a tiny refrigerator that was usually filled with beer or wine so when we ate at home, we had to cook fresh. I fell in love with that lifestyle of getting fresh ingredients and whipping something together.
When I returned, I began cooking fresh meals almost daily. I've always loved salty snacks but because I gain weight easily, I wanted to put a healthier bend on my favorites. Salsa, because of its natural ingredients, was a go-to. I would eat the salsa while cooking with it and over time, I developed the perfect recipes that contained flavor, consistency, and "durability" while cooking. And now I can share it with y'all
