“baja fresh green salsa recipe easy fresh salsa recipe”

sounds wonderful, especially reading all your reviews and comments. i want to try this with my fresh home grown yellow pear tomatoes. maybe add some avocado, roasted garlic and onion. OH! grilled green onion.
No, this salsa is not suitable for canning, the acidity has not been tested and with the addition of all those non-acidic veggies it is likely not below the pH of 4.6 required for safe canning. By canning a low acid mix like this you create a perfect environment for clostridium botulinum the bacteria that leads to botulism. When I can salsa I use recipes from the National Centre of Home Food Preservation. http://nchfp.uga.edu/how/can3_tomato.html Be safe and enjoy your salsa!
This recipe sounds a little over complicated to me. For Salsa Cruda I just chop into small dice: Roma tomatos (regular ones just aren’t right), yellow (red is for seafood) onions, jalapeno and chop finely some cilanto. Mix, add salt and lime juice. Ahh!
I absolutely love mango salsa! I make one that is like this one, but it has red bell peppers instead of pineapple. I love the pineapple idea! Fresh salsa is so easy to whip up and so much better than store bought. Can you imagine this one over a nice grilled fish? Yum!

We’ve made pico for family functions for a long time, but this particular recipe is modified from one of my mom’s friends. Other than the time it takes to chop of veggies, this recipe is very simple and is great for chips or to serve with any Mexican food. These ingredients combine to make a delicious, fresh and irresistible topping for any Mexican dish.
Come to think of it, salsa is actually the perfect anniversary recipe since my first recipe was for salsa. That post broke records for this blog back then. Three comments in one day! Those kind words made me giddy and made me think, hey, I could post more recipes. Here we are—1826 days, countless late nights, three jobs, four apartments and nearly 400 recipes later—with a dedicated food blog.
This is lovely dish with fresh, subtle flavors. I was very faithful to the recipe. I couldn’t find orecchiette, so I used campanelle. I stirred some of the ricotta in with the pasta and sauce, before putting the dollops on top. And I sprinkled the plate with a little parsley. This is a great summer meal! I had no clue what “fresh” ricotta was. Turns out it is very simple to make and delicious. See recipe on nytimes dot com. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/28/dining/281rrex.html
Gazpacho—a classic chilled soup—is the perfect dish to beat the summer heat, and this Peach-and-Tomato Gazpacho with Cucumber Yogurt captures summer in a bowl. It is light and refreshing, and it has the perfect balance of sweet peaches and ripe tomatoes, as well as a little spice from ground white pepper, some chopped fresh chives, and minced garlic.  You can chill this as little as an hour, or as much as a day. Depending on how far in advance you prepare this, you may need to check the seasonings. Regardless of how this dish comes to the table, guests will love its refreshing combination of flavors, and enjoy the idea of a cold, refreshing soup on a hot summer day, or as they ease into the relaxing feelings of a cool summer evening.
Save that liquid. Don’t throw it away. It’s delicious and nutritious and it makes you ambitious! Kidding aside, it can be used in other dishes like rice, or spaghetti sauce, soup or you can just drink it.
Use ripe tomatoes for this. Not all tomatoes are created equal. When choosing tomatoes, look for tomatoes that are deeply colored and firm, with a little give. If they don’t smell like anything, skip them. They should smell like a tomato — sweet and woody.
3 Adjust seasonings: Place in a serving bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. If the chilies make the salsa too hot, add some more chopped tomato. If not hot enough, carefully add a few of the seeds from the chilies, or add a little more ground cumin.
Another good and easy salsa is to fry in little oil some small diced onion, meanwhile boil tomatoes and fresh chiles. Blend tomatoes and chiles (dont add any water) mix with fried onions, add salt and fry in low heat until color changes to a dark red (cooked tomatoe).
When working with a limited palette, good ingredients make all the difference. We call for vanilla beans here because they impart fragrance and thousands of tiny, flavorful specks. They’re worth the splurge, but feel free to substitute 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract for the beans. And if you like, trade the homemade whipped cream for a scoop of ice cream. What’s so beautiful about this dish is how it is presented: peaches and cherries that have soaked in a beautiful Riesling mixture are dolloped with whipped cream. They look gorgeous and taste even better.
Nothing rounds out a taco party like a bowl of fresh pico de gallo. We make ours with fresh plum tomatoes, but you can use any good looking summer tomatoes you can find. Most salsas like this one don’t call for any oil but we added a couple of tablespoons to even out the bright flavors of the tomatoes, salt, and lime, and help it stick to your chip. A pinch of cayenne adds a little mystery heat, but feel free to leave it out. Seed the jalapeño for a milder batch, but don’t skip it: its floral flavor is what turns a bowl of chopped tomatoes into an addictive dip.
I’d better quit gushing and tell you about this super simple and outrageously delicious sweet-and-spicy salsa. I brought it to Tessa and Heath’s taco potluck/Game of Thrones watch party and it was a hit!
Very nicely written and illustrated recipe vespawoolf. Especiially good are the variations you offer for those with different tastes. A very appealing looking salsa. Voted up in four categories and shared on Pinterest. Alun.
When the oil in the pan is very hot but not yet smoking, place the fish flesh side down and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. As the fish cooks it will turn from translucent to opaque. Turn the fish over and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. When the fish is done it should be golden and firm but still moist.

“This is a spicy salsa that my family eats with tortilla chips. My daughter serves it with grilled chicken. It easy to prepare and process if you use the canned shortcuts. (Fresh is better, but it is still flavorful and spicy using canned tomatoes and peppers.) Use ONLY fresh, firm yellow peaches!”
This recipe is close to the one my father used to make…he would also add some cumin, use key lime juice, yellow spanish onions if available and roma tomatoes. I never cut the seeds out of the jalapinos and even use a mix of peppers to give it some kick.
Chop the peaches into small pieces and throw them into a bowl with all the other ingredients. Stir and add a splash of the reserved juice. Taste and add a little more salt and chili powder if you prefer.
I’m on the hunt for an out-of-this-world pico de gallo recipe. While this was not it, this will be my go-to base recipe for the time being. Fresh and good. Make sure to drain as much liquid from the tomatoes as possible during seeding and chopping. Let the lime juice and seasonings stand out by eliminating tomato liquid completely. Day 2 the flavor was still good in our case.
Big YES to this! Thanks for posting a simple recipe that will prevent me from continually buying the overpriced fresh version that Whole Foods puts out. This looks amazing! I’m going to try out with some jimaca chips (have you tried this before? it’s the best!).www.leanerbythelake.com
This salsa is wonderful. I have done one with all ingredients listed here except substitute strawberries for the pineapple. I then served that over grilled salmon marinated with raspberry vinaigrette, soooo good!!!
They live in Destin, FL now, and they pass through Clanton on the way up to Birmingham. So they stopped Durbin Farms, and they brought us some fresh peaches. Is there anything better in the summer than a fresh peach?!
Salsa is the Mexican word for sauce, which can be either cooked or fresh. Salsa cruda means uncooked salsa, and salsa verde is green salsa, which is usually made from tomatillos, green chilies and cilantro.
Happyboomernurse, it’s always nice to hear from you. How nice you have generous, garden-growing neighbors! What I wouldn’t do to get my hand on some of those tomatoes right now. : ) Enjoy the pico de gallo and I hope you have a chance to tell me about the variations you try. Thanks for the votes! Enjoy your Sunday, Gail.
These Barbecue-Peach Summer Rolls are delicious, and make a perfect finger food. There is no need to break a sweat assembling all the rolls yourself. Make a small batch to kick-start the party, then offer a platter of the fresh ingredients—including fresh peaches, cucumber, avocado, and pork—with the dipping sauce so guests can build their own. Just dip the rice paper sheets in hot water as directed, and wrap with a damp towel to keep them soft. Look for rice paper rounds in the international aisle of large grocery stores or Asian markets. Guests will love the Sweet Pepper-Peanut Sauce that brings just the right amount of heat and crunch to this sweet barbecue peach roll. Roll on up and dig right in.
Looks so pretty! I’d like to serve it with chips, so you recommend tortilla chips or cinnamon sugar crisps? Also, one of the pictures looks like there is something orange in it, but I don’t see any bring orange in the ingredients…I love color and don’t want to miss anything!
Mexican food is my favorite, so I make it alllll the time. Most of the time, whatever I’ve made, I feel like it just HAS to be topped with my beloved sour cream (pretty sure that’s not authentic, buuuuut I love it) and of course, some sort of salsa or pico de gallo.
I can eat it with every single meal I eat. I love to spoon heaping spoons full of Pico de Gallo on top of my scrambled eggs in the morning, add it to an avocado half with a bit of chicken for lunch, and then pile it on so many dishes for supper – like as a topping for my beef enchiladas, chicken enchiladas, or on tacos.
We love the idea of a twist on the traditional gelatin dessert, and this adult-only version mixes the sweet flavor of ripe peaches with some additional ingredients to create just the right result. You’ll need some of your favorite sparkling wine, as well as a little vodka and some of our Peach Puree, but this combines to be a cool sweet treat. Garnished with fresh peach slices, you’ll get the tastes of the season with a little unexpected taste and sensation. Serve this special treat in martini glasses for a party-perfect presentation.
I’m thrilled to have another salsa recipe to add to my current repertoire of restaurant-style and black bean salsa. Now that we seem to be turning the corner for summer, I’m ready for some warm-weather recipes! Do you have a favorite salsa recipe? Feel free to share it below!
It is safe to freeze fresh, uncooked salsa, but I wouldn’t recommend it. The texture will change leaving it quite mushy. The tomato peel would separate and be tough compared to all the other ingredients. It would be okay to add to soups or sauces but it wouldn’t be great for salsa and chips.

  • Toss the diced tomatoes and onion in a bowl, and add in the minced jalapeño and cilantro. Cilantro is vital to this dish, but it can be overpowering, so it’s OK to err on the side of caution and start with a smaller amount at first. You can always add more.

    I don’t have a big food processor (although I’d really like one!) but this small one is cheap, easy to clean and super handy.  I put everything for the salsa in it expect for the peaches.  It creates a perfect finely chopped up consistency for the salsa.  Just don’t overchop!  It also saves lots and lots of chopping time.
    It wasn’t all bad though. We did manage to have a few good experiences, despite all the of the drama. We ate some good food, and found that the staff who drive the cars, work in the restaurants, clean the rooms and tend to the gardens were all very friendly. I’ve been keeping in touch with one staff member who was really friendly, and all we talk about is food! He has given me one of his family recipes to try, so hopefully I will have that ready for you to check out soon!
