Salsa is a must-have in our home. I love having homemade salsa on hand because it comes in so handy for many meals and it also makes a healthy snack. Last fall we had a lot of tomatoes given to us, so I made batch after batch of salsa to have us stocked over the winter.
This homemade salsa is tried and true – it’s colorful and full of flavor.
