Gather your salsa ingredients
While we are big fans of keeping everything as fresh as possible, we do use canned diced tomatoes as it’s easier and tastes fantastic.
However, if you’re looking to use fresh tomatoes, the farmers market at Phillips Farms has always supplied us with great quality produce. You can find many of the ingredients in this recipe there on Saturdays.
As this recipe simply calls for everything to be tossed into a blender or processor, you don’t need to take much time to dice your vegetables. However, we do recommend a few rough chops to get a smoother blend.
Fresh jalapeño adds a delicious flavor to this salsa so we encourage you to keep it even if you aren’t a fan of spicy foods. For a less spicy salsa, seed the jalapeño.
Toss it in the processor!
Add all of your ingredients to a food processor or blender and pulse until combined. That’s it. That’s the recipe. Told you it was easy!
