Hey guys! Is it just me, or is it really hard to find good salsa in a jar? I want salsa that tastes fresh and like the kind from a restaurant! After trying out different recipes, I decided to just create my own and put everything into it that I like about salsa. Here it is!
- 3-4 cups of chopped tomatoes (I use 5 Roma tomatoes)
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup cilantro
- 2 cloves (1 tsp) garlic
- 2 tsp lime juice
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 cup crushed tomatoes
Start with chopping up your tomatoes. You should have about 3 cups.
I then like to add about a cup of crushed tomatoes. This gives it a more savory taste, and thickens it up. Fresh tomatoes are good, but this just gives it a little bit something extra. Tastes more like salsa, less like pico de gallo.
I like to refigerate mine for a few hours before serving. The flavors really meld together and we like our salsa cold.
This salsa is not spicy-but if you want to add a little bit of heat to yours, chop up a jalepeno (with the seeds) and add that in before blending.
