Salsa is probably one of those things you can’t really mess up. There are a ton of different ways to make it, things to put in it or leave out of it. I chose to try and make it with some of my garden veggies as well as some veggies I bought from the farmers market.
This recipe is easy, all it takes is some cutting up of veggies and throwing them in a bowl, throwing a quick blend on them and jarring. This make about 2 jars, but the more veggies the more you can make and than you can actually can this to save it for later. I didn’t have as many veggies as I had hoped but this made enough for me to share and it was well loved and eaten right away.
What Veggies Do I Need?
This part is the fun part, if you grew veggies, now is the time to harvest them and throw this delicious salsa together. If you super awesome like me (LOL) and like to hit the farmers market every week, grab some veggies there and get them ready.
Here is a list of the vegetables that I used, certainly leave out or add more as needed.
The Best Way To Chop These Up
Most of these veggies just need to be cut up nice and small. The main thing is your tomatoes need to drain a little before adding into your bowl. I put mine in a strainer and let them drain the juices over a pot while I cut up the rest of my vegetables.
While my tomatoes were draining I cut up the rest of my veggies into small pieces. I chose to put them in separate bowls, honestly just for picture purposes but you can throw this all in a bowl while cutting it up.
Mix Everything Together and Blend
Now that everything is cut up you are ready to mix everything together. There is no order for this, just get everything in the bowl and get it ready for blending.
Most recipes I was reading did call for some tomato paste at this step, but I didn’t have any and honestly this had SO much flavor I think that would have taken away from that. These jars of salsa were packed with fresh flavors, it was amazing.
I used my inversion blender and gave this a blend for only a few seconds. I didn’t want want to make it too soupy, I just wanted to grind down some of the chunkiness. You can easily skip this step, it would just be a chunkier salsa which is still great.
Like I said before, this Salsa was so delicious and eaten up right away. I shared a jar with my mom and stepdad and they couldn’t get enough of it. They ate their jar in one day!
This is something I will definitely make again and will make more the next time. I hope you chose to give this a try and let me know what you think. Be sure to share with some of your favorite people, they will appreciate it.
