Whether you eat it with tortilla chips or use it as a topping on your favorite Southwestern dish, salsa is a healthy and flavorful dip with a variety of different uses. These simple salsa recipes are welcome alternatives to your usual store-bought jar, and they come in a number of unique flavors that you may not have ever experienced.

Restaurant Style Salsa [Pioneer Woman]
No matter which brands you buy at the grocery store, salsa just never tastes as good at home as it does at a restaurant. This expert recipe will show you just how your favorite Mexican restaurant creates their crave-worthy salsa.

Crunchy Tomatillo-Avocado Salsa [Rick Bayless]
Combining the cool taste of avocado with flavorful tomatillos, this authentic salsa recipe is one for the books. It’s ideal for those who love spicy foods because it is simply full of hot green chilies, but this recipe can also be toned down to become more family-friendly.

Mango-Tomato Salsa [Food and Wine]
Perfect for pairing with crunchy fish tacos or other summer dishes, this sweet salsa incorporates mangos for a unique flavor. It’s truly simple to make, and it even looks just as good as it tastes.

Tomatillo Salsa Verde [Simply Recipes]

RISD Museum: A Providence Art Museum

July 9, 2014 12:03 pm

The Museum of Art of Rhode Island School of Design is the museum owned and operated by the renowned art college. This all-encompassing art museum appeals to many types of people, and it's one of Providence’s best tourist attractions due in part to a wide variety of exhibits and expansive collections.

The museum itself comprises five different buildings, including the Ancient Greek and Roman Galleries, Art and Design in the 20th and 21st Centuries, and the Early Renaissance and Medieval Galleries. The museum also puts a large emphasis on manufactured products like silverware, jewelry, and textiles because of Rhode Island’s long history as one of the first states to emphasize design in manufacturing.

The RISD Museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursdays. Admission for adults is $12, children ages 5 to 18 are $3, and children under five are admitted free.
