Homemade Salsa Recipe

Homemade salsa is not only fresher than store bought, but also contains way fewer preservatives. The preservatives in store bought salsa do allow it to have a longer shelf life, however this results in a much higher sodium content than in homemade.

3 Fresh Tomatoes
1/3 Red Onion (Chopped)
Cayenne Pepper
1 Lime (Juiced)
2 Garlic Cloves (Minced)

- Chop the tomato up into medium sized pieces.

- Mix the tomato in with the onion, cilantro, and garlic.

- Squeeze the lime juice over the mixture, and add a pinch or two of cayenne pepper.

- Place the mixture in a food processor for a few quick pulses to create a chunky salsa, or pulse for a bit longer to make a thinner dip.

*Feel free to add some processed jalapeƱo pepper into the salsa for a bit of a kick!
