A Simple Fresh Salsa Recipe

A salsa kit contains all the vegetables that it takes to make a great salsa. Once the tomatoes start we offer this weekly. It can vary a little from week to week early in the season, don't worry about the exact proportions, about anything works. The kit typically contains the following:

  • Tomatoes
  • Bell Peppers
  • Jalapeno
  • Sweet Onions
  • Tomatillo
  • Garlic
  • Cilantro
  • Salt and Lime to Taste (not included)
We suggest you add salt and lime, but we don't grow those so they aren't included.

It would typically be about twice the cost to gather up all the ingredients separately so this is a pretty good deal. Makes 1.5 quarts of salsa.

A Simple Fresh Salsa Recipe

Instructions to assembly your salsa. It is easiest to use a food processor, but you can make salsa with just a sharp knife.

Chop up the garlic, cilantro and jalapeno first (if you want it hotter, leave the seeds in, otherwise remove the seeds). Add bell peppers, tomatillo and sweet onions and pulse the food process several times to chop. Cut tomatoes into quarters and pulse again to chop. If you want chunky only pulse a couple of times. If you want a smoother salsa, pulse a few more times.


Kick it Up:
  • Add some of Petersen's sweet corn, cut kernels off the ear (a great way to use up leftovers)
  • Add black beans
  • Add chipotles
  • Add more Jalapenos
  • Double the recipe size with your own tomatoes or buy some extra
