Best Homemade Salsa & a Redesign

First of all, Our Savory Life got a little facelift. Isn’t she pretty?! I am so excited about this new design. Not only because it is pretty (and my obsession with whisks and wooden spoons are now displayed prominently throughout) but also because it is more user friendly!

I had you in mind. You have better access to past recipes. Updated categories to find your recipes. You’ll be able to identify the newest recipe. And best of all it is mobile and tablet friendly:

It’s a win for us all!

Come on in and poke around and let me know what you think! Two quick immense thank you’s: Tiffany Kelley Design Co. did this amazing design and backend work. Her and her team were amazing to work with. Also, all new photos of me were done by the most fabulous Carissa Cady Photography – not only is she one of my favorites, she is unbelievably talented!

Ok, I could not share my new site without giving you a new recipe! If you know me personally you probably already have this recipe because you ask me for it all the time ; ) This recipe was hard for me to develop because I do something different every time.

A little of this. A little of that. I am my mother’s daughter.

I know this because after I got married I called my mom no less than 5 times a week at approximately 5:03 pm everyday freaking out about having to make dinner again. It shocked me every time. I’d frantically demand she give me a recipe. My mom was so sweet, “Oh hi honey! How was your day?! I miss you!”

And I would excitedly reply with the absence of full sentences, “Mom. Help. Dinner. Need to feed people. Always hungry at this time.”

She’d walk me through a quick meal and her instructions always came out like this, “And then you add a little cumin, a dash of pepper, a swirl of olive oil.”

Bless her. She did not understand how much I did not understand about cooking. Which was about exactly zero.

I was all on the phone like….what? WHAT IS A DASH?!

Seven years later and I get you mom.

But I want to give you all exact measurements for this salsa because what food blog survives by giving “dashes” and “splashes?”

Exactly.

I made this salsa recipe probably about 20 times with a pen and paper in hand to get it right. I want to give you the best ever homemade salsa recipe you will ever have. You cannot go wrong. I am cheering so hard for you!

Best Homemade Salsa Recipe

Fresh ingredients are important! And it all just goes into the food processor.

This is the best and easiest homemade salsa! It takes about 10 minutes to make and it is the only salsa recipe you will ever need!

The great thing about this recipe is it will give you a good base. If you want more heat – add more jalapeño. If you want more salt – add more salt! You really cannot go wrong.

Just pulse in the blender and you have the freshest salsa that packs a punch. I take this to every get together. I eat this by the spoonfuls.

Also, this salsa is paleo! We have made it and served it with plantain chips to keep it a fully paleo snack. I used to make my own plantain chips but Trader Joe’s sells them and they are made with real ingredients!! So yummy and crunchy.

Or you can go with grain free chips. PSA – I found you the best chip. Seriously, these are the perfect tortilla chips. At first I thought it was just advertising. But it was also truth.

Ingredients

  • One 28-ounce can whole tomatoes with juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (or 1 tsp garlic powder)
  • 1 jalapeño, quartered and sliced thin (remove seeds if you do not want a spicy salsa)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

Instructions

  1. Combine the whole tomatoes (with juice), cilantro, onions, garlic, jalapeño, cumin, salt and lime juice in a blender or food processor.
  2. Process until you get the salsa to the consistency you like. I let the food processor run for about 15-20 seconds. Or pulse about 10 times. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
  3. Refrigerate the salsa for at least an hour before serving.
