Homemade Salsa

It's so easy to make your own salsa. Get this homemade salsa recipes from www.drugstoredivas.net.I love salsa, but I never knew how to make it. So I texted my friend Maria. “If I chop onions, tomatoes, and cilanto, can I call that salsa or is that just pico?”

She laughed, then told me it’s pico.

I knew that. I was just hoping maybe I could get away with calling it salsa. No such luck. I then had to ask her for her salsa recipe. It was amazing — and super simple, so, of course, I was kicking myself after for spending money on jarred salsa all these years. Never again. From now on, it’s salsa from scratch. It barely took me longer than ten minutes to make this (which, honestly, is about the length of time it takes me to open a jar of salsa).

    I made a similar salsa with my garden produce. Didn’t have cilantro but all the rest were fresh picked. I diced the tomatoes, onions, and peppers and used just enough of the seeds to make it hot for our taste buds. It lasted in the fridge without cooking for about a week and was great with chips, eggs, well, just about everything. – Margy

    Delicious! Very similar to mine, but I like to roast everything instead of boil. Gives it a slightly sweet taste :)
