Restaurant Style Blender Salsa
An easy to make salsa, made in a blender, the perfect way to get salsa for Taco Tuesday, or when you want a great appetizer. Finely chopped salsa.
While canned salsa works in a pinch, there is just something about making your own salsa fresh on the day you want it that is incredible. This salsa isn’t exactly fresh, in that it is made from tomatoes in a can. Crazy right? But it tastes like a million bucks.
I could drink this salsa, I like it that much. I love a good chunky salsa, such as the 3 Tomato and 3 Cucumber Salsa I shared this summer. Or the Fresh Avocado and Cucumber Corn Salsa. But sometimes I like that smooth, blended salsa, like they have at Chili’s. Especially during the many months of the year when tomatoes just aren’t flavorful, so a fresh salsa doesn’t taste good. This is the winner!
It really is so delicious. And super easy. It is a dump and blend salsa that makes enough for a party, or to use for cooking. It can keep in the fridge for about a week, so you could also just make a nice big batch to enjoy.
I usually leave the sugar out, and sometimes I toss in a quarter of a red onion to add a little more onion flavor. Enjoy!
