Homemade Cilantro and Garlic Salsa

This no fuss salsa is ready at the push of a finger…

Just add all ingredients to a blender and blend away.

Done.

I especially like this salsa because it’s slightly tart from the lime juice, spicy from the jalapenos, and the overall taste is very fresh from the cilantro, garlic and Roma tomatoes.

It tastes best when there’s just enough seasoned salt added which really brings out the flavor.

This salsa is great for dipping because it’s a little on the thick side and has a nice texture to it.

Salsa comes in really handy when:

  • Guests are coming over and you need a quick and easy appetizer for them (and you) to snack on;
  • Plain old scrambled eggs need something to spice them up;
  • You’re at home with your fuzzy slippers on and tortilla chips are calling your name all the way from the pantry;
  • There’s leftover sour cream in the fridge…just mix in this salsa for a quick dip;
  • Marinating meat;
  • Having Mexican food for breakfast, lunch or dinner; and
  • You want to give someone a just-because-gift…put the salsa in a mason jar and add a ribbon.

So let’s check out the ingredients.

Cilantro, garlic, Roma tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, onion (white or yellow), a lime (juiced) and seasoned salt.

Here’s how to make it.

In a blender, add all of the ingredients.

Next,

blend on the sauce setting.

Then,

do a taste test to see if the salsa needs more salt.

If so, add more salt and use the pulse setting to mix it in.

Chill before serving…

…then…

…without wasting any time…

dig in and enjoy.
