I was a judge today at the first Family Salsa Festival salsa competition at the Good Samaritan Mission in Wimauma.
Despite a brief rain shower, the event itself was fun and brought out a variety of salsa, including black bean and corn, mango and smoked.
The perfect salsa involves blending the right amount of heat and sweetness.
And a little kick doesn't hurt.
I applaud all the participants and congratulate the winners who earned bragging rights:
