The BEST fresh homemade salsa recipe
It's hard to believe that the only salsa I ever used to make was the kind where you throw tomatoes (often from a can) into a pot with a bunch of other ingredients and cook it for a while. Now, using ingredients from the farmers market or your own back yard, this fresh homemade salsa recipe blows that one away. We call it “salsa”, but technically I'm pretty sure the way I make it is actually “pico de gallo”!
Fresh Homemade Salsa
- Juice from 1 lime
- 1/3 bunch cilantro chopped
- 1 med onion chopped small (more to your taste)
- 2 stalks celery chopped into small pieces
- 2-4 jalapeños chopped
- 3-4 bell peppers chopped – all different colors look prettiest
- 12 assorted tomatoes chopped small – or however many you have
- 2-3 cloves fresh garlic chopped small
- About 1/2 teaspoon sea salt add more to your taste
- Optional: 1 teaspoon Palm sugar
- More ingredients to try I love them all: few shakes of cumin, fresh chopped parsley, grilled corn on the cob, black beans
- Avocado would be yummy but I'm not sure if the lime in the recipe would be enough to keep it from turning brown. Does anyone know?
- Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and toss together. Enjoy.
- For a faster version, just clean all of the ingredients and toss them into a food processor until it's as chunky as you like it. 🙂
