Easy Fresh Salsa Recipe
This homemade salsa recipe is easy and can be enjoyed any time of year. I used fresh tomatoes in this fresh salsa recipe but if tomatoes aren't in season, you can substitute the fresh tomatoes for another can of diced tomatoes and it'll turn out great too.
If you like your salsa to be pretty chunky and you enjoy those bigger pieces of chopped onion and tomato, you can chop your ingredients. This salsa recipe also works great just tossing the ingredients into a food processor.
I cut them up enough to toss in there and let the food processor do the rest of the work. So easy.
One of our favorite ways to enjoy this recipe is with our other copycat chipotle recipes. They are perfect made separately or enjoyed all together in a stuffed burrito.
