As a kid I learned the art of salsa making from the masters, my mother and Tias (Aunts). Interestingly, my father who was not Hispanic took to salsa making like a pro and ended up taking over the majority of salsa making as the years progressed. Each Hispanic family has their own favorite combo for making salsa, but I do know that if I put a bowl of salsa out on a table, it’s gone within minutes! So, I think our family’s version is a definite winner.
Today I am excited to share my family’s version with you, because one bite and you will never want to buy the store bought stuff again. Bursting with fresh veggies and flavors it’s like manna to your mouth!
I think my Abuelita (Grandma) used to probably make her salsa entirely from scratch, but since we live in a world with quite a few ready-made conveniences, it allows today’s home chef the opportunity to whip up a batch of yummy salsa in only five minutes!
Are You ready to learn how to make it?!
Here is what you will need:
2 to 3 cans of petite diced tomatoes
1 small can of diced jalapenos
1 bunch cilantro
1 bunch green onions
Slice green onions (even green stalks), about a fistful of the cilantro, and add fresh items to the petite diced tomatoes in a bowl.
Top with about 2 tablespoons of garlic salt, 1 teaspoon of salt and pepper. You can do more or less according to your taste, because in fact tasting as you go is the best way to proceed when making salsa anyways!
