Homemade Salsa Recipe

Jump to recipe!

Happy Wednesday! I have some exciting news for you! We are getting super close to launching the new blog, Pocket Change Gourmet. Doug and I prepared, cooked, filmed and worked all day yesterday on some yummy recipes. Stay tuned…we should launch by early next week!

Now back to our recipe for today…

A couple weeks ago, we headed up to Sawyer Garden Center to grab a few more flowers for the Front Porch, and I spotted some beautiful tomatoes. Doug and the boys love salsa, and of course…summertime is the perfect time to make Homemade Salsa.

There’s nothing better than to head to your garden or even market and grab some fresh veggies during the Summer. The great thing about Salsa is, you can not only serve it as a side dish with chips, but you can also add it to your Mexican main dishes. Homemade Salsa is perfect served over Taco Ring, in Mexican Lasagna or even top a burger with it!

And in case you are looking to can your Homemade Salsa, there is a great article on Home Preserving and Canning over at Home Ec 101.
