Originating in Mexico, salsa simply means "sauce" and in Mexican terms firey and tomatoey with plenty of fresh chilies, onion, cilantro, garlic and salt. Always a blend of chopped, diced or grated fruit and vegetables, along with fresh herbs and spices.
It is not only delicious but good and healthy for you, too.
High in fiber and vitamins and the do it yourself homemade salsa recipe contains no preservatives, no sugar, and so many of them can be fat-free.
The uncooked sauces are made with vegetables or fruit and chiles.
Thank you SO much for the great salsa recipes. Your site was introduced
to me by Cajun Clark.
I made the "Tomato-Tomato Paste Salsa" for canning.
The results were STELLAR.
Using my backyard tomatoes I made two batches and now I only have
enough for my own use. It has been a huge hit and people are looking
for more. They'll have to wait until next year, now.
Thank you again. I had been using the (company name removed) Salsa mix but I never
will again. I ventured into the unknown to be absolutely delighted with
the finished product.
Caj said your head will swell, as well it should!
