This is a great Cinco de Mayo food as it leaves one hand open for the obligatory margarita! That's only the beginning, whip this up all summer long and take it to BBQs, summertime parties, to the pool, etc. It makes a perfect light meal or needed snack just when you want to grab the chips! And- the coconut adds a nice earthiness you don't typically see in a summer salsa; it really rounds out the flavors and keeps you satiated for hours! Order your Ingredient Kit from Frida’s!

This week’s theme has been rolls, and you’re going to rock today’s roll! We are making spinach artichoke dip vegan egg rolls. Actually, this started out as a just a super delicious spinach artichoke dip, but then we thought, hmmm - what if we packaged this goodness up into a roll? Seems natural, eh? Here’s our recipe. We’re adamant about all of our Quarantine Show recipes having no more than 7 ingredients, so, we’re taking this recipe and kicking a few ingredients to the curb. If you are cooking with us, these are the wrappers we are using.
