Native Kjalii Foods, owned by young entrepreneurs Bret and Julie Jeremy, produces some of the freshest-tasting salsas available, for a logical reason ― the ingredients are fresh. Fire-roasted components are highlighted in these refrigerated salsas: avocado-mango, citrus-papaya-chipotle, cucumber, green and red chili-vegetable blends, guacamole, and papaya-mango. The Jeremys, who began selling their salsas in farmers' markets, now distribute to several Western states (15-oz. containers cost $4 to $6 each). For more information, visit www.sfsalsa.com.
Bret shares one of the partners' favorite salsa recipes, which they produce when corn is at its sweetest. Try it with grilled shrimp.
