Make Fresh Tomato Salsa Your Own

This salsa is a take on my Homemade Salsa Recipe, but uses FRESH tomatoes instead of canned since they are now in season. If you are finding this post when tomatoes are not in season, feel free to use canned. Making salsa is a great way to use garden ripe tomatoes. This salsa is made with simple ingredients and easy to adjust the the flavors to the way you like it. Make it more or less spicy, chunky or smooth…however you like. Serve with Tortilla chips for an afternoon snack or as topping to any Mexican dish.

What Tomatoes are Best for Salsa?

I love the taste of fresh tomatoes in salsa. Honestly, any fresh tomato will do here…even better if you pulled them straight from your garden. You want to make sure that the tomatoes you use are firm, and a deep red color.
