How To Make Delicious Homemade Salsa
You can buy all the salsa you want to out of the grocery store but your never going to purchase anything as good as a good delicious homemade salsa. I know you'll see recipes calling for you to use canned tomatoes but I never do. I purchase the freshest tomatoes I can from the grocery store and chop them for my homemade salsa. When I can find them I use fresh plum tomatoes or cherry tomatoes because I think they have a lot more flavor especially in the winter months.
You need to use green onions including the tops, fresh cilantro, and fresh minced garlic.I use the little four ounce cans of green chili's but I also use a few fresh jalapeno peppers. You should keep in mind that the more fresh jalapeno peppers you use the hotter your homemade salsa will be.

Mix everything together in a large plastic container with a lid so you can put the prepared salsa in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours before you serve or use your homemade salsa.
Salsa usually refers to a Mexican sauce made from tomatoes flavored with cilantro, chilies, and onions. But you'll find that some Chefs have started thinking outside the box and they are making salsa out of mango, fruits, vegetables, and even beans. If you can come up with a flavor combination you like there's no reason you can't call it salsa. So why not do some out of the box thinking and see what you can come up with. I think you'll find that sea salt will give you a lot more flavor in almost any salsa recipe.
