The Best Salsa Recipe

This is hands down, the best salsa recipe and adds a fresh pop of flavour to any dish! We love to pair it with our Keto fish tacos, campfire skillet nachos and crockpot salsa chicken.

This recipe is perfect for all of those Mexican, taco night dishes that you know and love. It’s easy to make and simple to prepare in minutes!

I also like to can salsa every year and use it in some of our favorite recipes like this Cheesy Campfire Dip. Be sure to check out my canned salsa recipe too!

The Best Salsa Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 large white onion
  • 3 roma tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 bell peppers
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (optional)
  • 2 green onions
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 tsp salt
Salsa Ingredients

Directions:

  1. Dice all of the vegetables finely. Tip: a food processor can be used to make the cutting faster and easier.
  2. Add to a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Squeeze in the juice of 1/2 of a lime, add salt and stir.
  4. Refrigerate for at least an hour so that the flavours combine.

This recipe makes about two cups of salsa depending on the size of your vegetables. We like to use Roma tomatoes because they have the most flesh of all the varieties and don’t make this dish too juicy.

Cilantro and lime can be added to your liking but we always think the more cilantro, the better. Fresh cilantro and lime juice is a must have in order to get the crisp, fresh flavour that makes this the best salsa recipe!

Looks delicious. Do you think using a sweet onion would be okay?
