Sidekicks Salsa was a total fluke started by two Clevelanders, Danny Soza & Jessie Green. In the summer of 2013, they participated in the Salsa Smackdown for Countryside Conservancy Farmers Market at Howe Meadow in Peninsula, Ohio. As the acting Sous Chef for Dante Boccuzzi Akron (DBA), Danny was asked to compete, and asked Jessie for assistance, who was running the front of house operations at a local restaurant.
Today, Sidekicks Salsa produces their salsas locally in the heart of Cleveland, Ohio. They take great care and pride in our ingredients and methods, focusing on healthy alternatives and the freshest fixings. They use citrus juice and pure honey as our base and skip the bleached sugars and vinegar. All of our salsas are low in sodium. They take the time to make a reduction with citrus juice and fresh vegetables, as a unique way to concentrate all of their flavors. The result is a fresh, bright and delicious taste.
