Easy Homemade Salsa

This recipe for easy homemade salsa is so simple. It is requested for all our parties. Homemade fresh salsa is worth the time to make. You will want to make it all the time.

Just in time for Cinco de Mayo here is my recipe for salsa. This is a fresh salsa that is so easy to make and you can make it as mild or hot as you would like. This recipe is for a large batch but you can cut it in half for just your family. It keeps nicely for a few days in the refrigerator.

  2. Nothing like fresh salsa! I am growing all the fixings for it!!

  3. YUM! Your fresh salsa recipe sounds great! (I don't put the garlic in mine either.) Don't you just love it when really GOOD things are easy to make? Are you going to make this (or some other special dishes) for Cinco de Mayo on thursday?

  4. My family is crazy for salsa and LOVES finding new recipes. Your recipe has some of our favorite things - cilantro and Pace salsa! Can't wait to try it! Thanks for sharing :)

  5. I've never made salsa completely from scratch, so I'd love to try your recipe. And I can already tell that it will be yummy, because of all that cilantro, which my husband and I LOVE!
    Happy REDnesday,

  6. Since I do not cook much anymore, I will be stopping by when your meal is ready. Looks so good.

  7. Your father-in-law and I would get along just fine. I'm a garlic lover too!

    “A world without red?
    I’d rather be dead!
    No crimson? It shivers my skin!”
