Salsa doesn’t just come from a tub at the grocery store. Making your on salsa only takes about 5 minutes and you’ll find that it’s much tastier than the store bought version.

Most salsa recipes use canned tomatoes. This easy recipe is made with fresh tomatoes. Fresh tomatoes are a favorite summer ingredient and this recipe is a delicious way to use them.

Homemade is much better because it’s made with fresh tomatoes, onions, and other ingredients you probably have at home.

By making your own you can make it a hot or mild salsa simply by adjusting the amount of pepper used. Either way this is an extremely easy salsa recipe that your family and friends are sure to enjoy.

Canning salsa is also an easy process. If you would like to can some just make a big batch and preserve if for future use by canning. It only takes about 15 minutes to can it in a water bath canner!

Give this homemade salsa recipe a try. It’s a snap to make and preserve by canning. A great recipe for salsa!
