Make your own fresh salsa

Sunday, December 02, 2012

Make your own salsa, it isn't hard to do. Commercial salsa is very high in sodium. Commercial "fresh" salsa tastes old and sometimes doesn't have your favorite mix of ingredients in it, not to mention that a pint container of it can cost as much as four dollars.

Here's how to make your own:

2 c. chopped fresh tomatoes
1/4 diced onion or scallions
handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
two garlic cloves, minced
Juice of one lime, or 2 TBSP of bottled lime juice
salt to taste (if at all)

You can even store it in a commercial salsa jar, just for the fun of it.

    i just made my own fresh salsa tonight - i use red onion instead of green, and jalapeno pepper instead of garlic, but the rest is the same. made it with coach nicole's guacamole (cucumber mixed in to lighten it up!). two of my favorites:-)

    I absolutely LOVE homemade salsa! I usually make tons of it in the summer when tomatoes are ripe and cheap. This year, I canned my own to eat in the winter. It's not as good as fresh, but WAY better than store bought!
