Homemade Salsa

Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Oil-Free, Nut-Free, Sugar-Free, Grain-Free, Vegan (of course!)

I currently have four different types of salsa in my refrigerator, and I have no shame. Salsa is one of my go-to savory snacks, my “there is literally nothing to eat so I’ll just have salsa” snacks, and my pride and joy at Mexican restaurants. So, it is about time I developed my own salsa recipe! Plus, fresh salsa always tastes 10x better than the pre-packaged stuff!

This Homemade Salsa is chock-full of flavor; fresh, vibrant ingredients like red onion and (lots of!) cilantro; it requires minimal ingredients and effort, and it only takes about 5-10 minutes to make! Who knew salsa was so easy to make?
