Most of Anne’s suggestions for doctoring salsa don’t call for exact measurements. Just pour your favorite salsa into a bowl and taste as you add any of the ingredients listed below. All the variations can be scooped up with tortilla chips, but a list of some other possible accompaniments is available in The Dinner Doctor (see below) for a change of pace.

1 Add avocado cubes, chopped fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

2 Stir in mango chunks, chopped fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

3 Fold in a small can of drained crushed pineapple and chopped fresh cilantro.
