Fresh Homemade Salsa

My Fresh Homemade Salsa recipe can literally go on top of anything. This is hands down 100% better than store-bought salsa, and healthier too! I always keep this in My fridge, because it is super easy to make and goes perfect on eggs, chicken, steak, and even salads!

How To Make Homemade Salsa

Making homemade salsa is extremely easy and takes no time at all. My favorite way to make it is just adding everything to a food processor and processing it until I get the consistency I like. I like mine fine, but not fine enough to be soupy. It really is just preference. Pulsing it longer will give you a thinner consistency and pulsing it fewer times will make it chunky.

Tips and Tricks For Homemade Salsa

  • Always chill it before serving. I find that leaving it in the fridge up to 24 hours before serving makes it taste so much better. I find that all the flavors marry together as it sits in the fridge.
  • If you like it spicy, add jalapeno pepper. This is totally optional though. If you aren’t a spice fan, remove it.
  • Make sure to add the lime zest. It really makes a difference with the finished process.
  • If you are keto, serve this salsa with fresh-cut veggies such as cucumbers, mini bell peppers, or carrot chips. I also love serving it with Epic’s Pork Rinds.

Storage

Store in an air-tight container or large mason jar with a lid in the fridge for up to 7 days. Make sure to give it a big stir with a spoon before serving.
