If there is any food that is extremely personal it’s salsa! Think about it — we all have our favorite kind of salsa, whether it’s spicy, chunky, creamy, made with cilantro — and so on. It’s like a fingerprint — everyone has a different taste. And that’s what I like about this Homemade Salsa recipe — it can be made with your personal taste in mind.

All you need are 6 ingredients and the rest is up to you.


The main ingredients of this Homemade Salsa recipe include tomatoes, jalapenos, and cilantro.


But I started with the red onion. This has to first get chopped up in the food processor. And honestly, a red onion is the perfect seasoning, especially if you are making salsa.


Then I added the tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro, salt and lime juice.


I like my salsa several different ways … for this one I made it less chunky and more creamy. And because I used a full bunch of cilantro it has a beautifully fresh taste.


Truth be told, this was a food bucket list recipe for me! I have always wanted to make Homemade Salsa and I can’t believe how easy it was.

You will love this with chips or even with a piece of chicken or fish. It’s the perfect seasoning!
