Sherie L. Grillon


A native of New Orleans, Sherie Grillon has always been passionate about food. Her earliest memories are of being in the kitchen with her maw-maw (grandmother) watching cooking shows and preparing the family dinner.

In high school, Sherie began working in restaurants in the French Quarter. Always watching-always learning. As a student at the University of Texas in Austin, Sherie continued to work in restaurants and fell in love with the bold flavors of Mexican cuisine. It was there that she began experimenting with making her own salsa.

After years of perfecting the process and much encouragement from family and friends, Sherie launched NOLA’s Salsa in 2011. Today, NOLA’s Salsa is carried in stores and restaurants throughout the Northeast. And the revolution continues to spread.
