If you’ve never made homemade salsa before, then you’ll be amazed at how easy and inexpensive it is. There is no cooking involved. Seriously. A bit of chopping and then a few blitzes in the food processor, and you’ve got yourself one delicious dip! And the best part is you can adjust it to your own tastes. Like lime? Add more lime juice! Prefer it spicy? Leave the seeds in the jalapeno! (Or if you’re crazy like my brother-in-law, just add a ghost pepper or two. I truly don’t understand how that guy has any taste buds left.)
The best part about this salsa? Aside from being easy and delicious, it also tastes better the next day. So here’s to many summer afternoons of chips and salsa on the back porch! Feel free to join me…but I can’t promise there will be any salsa left.
Note: This salsa tastes much better the day after you make it! The raw garlic and onion flavors meld a bit, so I often make a batch of this salsa and stick it in the fridge until the next day.
Restaurant Style Salsa
- Place all ingredients in a large food processor. Pulse several times until salsa reaches desired consistency.
- Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. (Tip: this salsa tastes even better the next day!)
