Fresh salsa is super easy to make and tastes authentic and delicious .

In this recipe canned tomatoes (cut, diced or whole) are used which makes it even easier to make.

The most important thing to do when making this salsa is to add enough salt.

Even with all of the fresh ingredients, the salsa can taste bland if there isn’t enough salt in it.

 

So for sure do a couple taste tests and add more salt until it tastes just right.
