I love serving fresh salsa. I used to eat it on chips or crackers, now I eat it with salads or sliced veggies. However you want to eat it fresh homemade salsa beats the stuff you buy in the jar at the grocery store every time!
It’s easy to make, I usually give everything a rough chop, then throw it in the food processor. The salsa is delicious any time of the year, but it’s extra yummy during the summer when tomatoes are in season and you can pick them straight from the garden!
Homemade Fresh Salsa
- 3-4 medium tomatoes
- 1 bell pepper
- 1 banana pepper
- 2 hot peppers (Jalapeno, Pueblo, Habanera, your choice and heat)
- 1-2 Tablespoons of apple cider vinegar or lime juice
- 3-4 cloves of garlic
- cilantro (optional)
- 1 small onion
Give everything a coarse chop, then feed it all together into a food processor. Refrigerate the salsa when you’re done to let all the flavors blend together. This salsa is actually even better after a couple hours when the flavors are all melded together.
Serve with veggie sticks or over a taco salad with ground beef/turkey, tomatoes, cheese, lettuce and avocado. Yum! I like to make a batch regularly to keep on hand in the refrigerator for a quick snack or lunch.
Beware! This salsa is addicting, once you start, it’s hard to stop.
You can also throw all your vegetables on the grill for a few minutes before you chop them to bring out some extra flavor.
