I am so over store bought salsa.
I have had this feeling for a while now and try to make my own salsa whenever possible, but finally the other night, I bought enough ingredients to use with dinner and to have a full jar of homemade salsa to enjoy later. I suppose it’s more of a pico de gallo because I love chunky salsa (and guacamole for that matter too!) so there was no use of a food processor- just a lot of chopping! If you like it a little less chunky, a pulse or two in the food processor would be perfect.
3 jalapenos (warning: hot)
1 medium white onion
½ a medium red onion
1 cup cilantro (I’m a fiend- so a little less if you aren’t)
5 cloves garlic
3 limes juice (hell, I even threw in some of the pulp)
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp sea salt (More can always be added but not taken away!)
1 tsp chili powder
1 cup (2-3 ears) of grilled/pan fried corn. If pan frying it, try putting in 3 tbsps of pineapple juice and 2 tbsp EVOO. Since you are using pans now, I would probably add the garlic, salt, ½ the cilantro, cumin and chili powder now.
Sweeten it up with some diced fruit of your choice- pineapple, mango, peach etc.
