Easy Salsa Recipe

I’m so excited to share this recipe with you! It is one of my most favorite and versatile recipes. I always have the ingredients at the house, it’s perfect to make when I’m about to have guests over and it travels well so you can make it ahead of time for a BBQ or a potluck. I also love that when it’s 100 degrees outside I don’t have to turn on the stove to enjoy delicious quick salsa! AND it’s healthy, so feel free to overindulge.

Ingredients:

I have my staples when making salsa, with this recipe the most important ingredient are the tomatoes. Use fresh ones from your garden or buy canned. The better the flavor of the tomato the better tasting your salsa will be. I am obsessed with Kirkland Signature brand diced tomatoes. They are organic roma tomatoes and they are so tasty and tastes so fresh. I always have to grab a box whenever I go to Costco. Other ingredients include onion, serranos, minced garlic, cumin, salt, lime, cilantro, and the last two of the other important ingredients. Apple cider vinegar….this I use in most of my salsa recipes, I love the flavor it adds to my salsas and it also helps the salsa last a little longer in the fridge. Also, agave nectar…many salsas add sugar too and I just can’t do it. I do love the balance between spicy and sweet so I opt for using blue agave nectar instead of sugar. I’m just giving you all my secrets!!

The Process:

Once you have all your ingredients together, roughly chop them and throw them in a food processor. Quick tip: if you don’t like spicy salsa but want the flavor, make sure to cut open the serranos and take out all of the seeds and the membrane. Otherwise, cut of the stems, cut them in fourths and toss them in as is!

Pulse until desired consistency. Made to order, straight from home! I like mine well blended so I pulse until it’s very thin. My husband likes his salsa chunky so I pulse a lot less for him.

Now you are all set! Place your salsa in a dish and store in the fridge for later or enjoy right away.

 

I am so glad I get to share this with you. It is a basic staple in this house and I can’t wait for it to become one in yours.

Enjoy!
