Home / Recipes / MEXICAN TOMATO SALSA
In Spanish, Italian, Greek, and Turkish the term Salsa means sauce. Salsa usually refers to Mexican cuisine and is often tomato-based. Salsa has the advantage of being a salad, sauce and relish all in one. I have used fresh ripped firm tomatoes instead of using canned tomatoes and I like my salsa to be in mini chunks. Better use fresh ingredients when it’s easily available. Using fresh tomatoes gives homemade salsa fresh natural flavour and bright colour. I know many of us try our best to avoid canned tomatoes due to: - acidity of tomatoes may draw toxic from the can lining into the food. - canned foods are heavily salted and may contain other preservatives.
