Peppy Pete's Gourmet Salsa's new recipe - Cilantro Chutney - took first place in the Creative Activities contest at the Minnesota State Fair.

This was the first State Fair blue ribbon the company won, and the fifth ribbon overall in the past three years. The Cilantro Chutney salsa is made from fresh roma tomatoes, zucchini, cilantro, garlic and hints of both key lime and lemon.

Peppy Pete's Gourmet Salsa's began in 2014 and is owned and operated by Dave and Lisa Jacobson of Breezy Point. Since the business's inception, the couple has given roughly 75,000 samples throughout Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. The salsa is sold at retail at Kowalski's Markets throughout the Twin Cities.
