One of the best things on the planet is salsa – no doubt about it! You can have it with pretty much anything; veggie lettuce boats, nachos, on pasta, on rice, to your potato wedges, and so on. And the best part about salsa is that you can easily make it yourself and vary the flavor in many different and delicious ways.
Here comes my basic salsa recipe which works well with whatever you like! Feel free to add to or change the listed ingredients if you feel like making a bolder sauce.
¼ – ½ white onion
1-2 cloves of garlic – can be omitted
green jalapeños – according to your own liking
¼ cup tomato purée
a dash of ground cumin
a splash of lemon juice, or apple cider vinegar
Peel and roughly dice the onion. Peel the garlic and place it together with the onion in a high speed blender. Blend until chopped according to your own liking.
Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until chunky or smooth. I prefer my salsa fairly chunky.
I usually throw in whole tomatoes and then push them down with a tamper. You could also just dice them roughly if you want or need to.
Be happy and clean, stay fruity and green!
