Start with fresh ingredients. The fresher they are the better the results. Don’t use canned tomatoes. It gives the salsa a metallic taste. You’ll notice that there aren’t any limes in the recipe. Whhhaaattt? Limes throw off the balance of flavors by overpowering the flavor of the tomatoes. But, if you prefer your salsa with lime try adding the juice from only one lime.
10 Let jars cool, lids should pop: Remove jars from the water bath and let sit on a counter for several hours until completely cool. The lids should “pop” as the cooling salsa creates a vacuum under the lid and the jars are sealed.
Absolutely fantastic salsa! So easy! I had the unique opportunity to compare it to the Chevy’s salsa yesterday(who doesn’t like that salsa?), this salsa tastes BETTER! – the flavors are fresher. Thank you for sharing it. I am going to make some for gifts. Fabulous!!!

UPDATE 09/06/17: Lots of you have asked for a weight measure on the tomatoes. I’ve been canning this salsa the last few days and experimented weighing measuring tomatoes. The result? Tomatoes are unpredictable! Meaning, the exact weight  (that will yield the 10 cups drained needed in the recipe) is EXTREMELY variable depending on the type of tomato used.
I made several batches of this salsa last year. The very best salsa. Everyone loves this salsa. Planting a lot more tomatoes this year. Plan on making & canning a room full of this salsa. I can’t wait for canning time. The very best salsa ever. Gave so much to friends & family & everyone wants more. I even decorated my jars & gave some for gifts. Love it
I have never bough store salsa, my mom and I have always made lots of salsa every fall with our produce from our garden! I’m willing to give a few toes to bet it’s the best. salsa. ever. EVER! 🙂 However, it requires a lot more time and more romas than your recipe, so I stayed up last night after putting the kids to bed and made yours. I loved your trick of putting the romas in the oven – life changing! The salsa is delicious, thank you! I will definitely continue to make my mom’s recipe, but this recipe comes close and will stay in my recipe binder. 🙂 Thanks!
I found this recipe from Pinterest and I cannot believe how good it tastes. I’ve made it once a week for the past 3 weeks. It will definitely be my go to salsa recipe for when I do not make my own with fresh tomatoes. Thanks so much for the recipe!
Last Saturday evening our community sponsored a chili contest. I prepared and entered your white chicken chili with lime recipe. The two judges, owners of a local, very popular, restaurant, Vin 909, chose my offering. They cited the ying and yang of the chili spices heightened by the lime juice as the reason for its standout flavor. Thank you for a wonderful blog that never fails to shine! -Carole Falk
This sweet-and-spicy salsa is filled with contrasting flavors and textures. Reserving some of the mango, bell pepper and scallion to stir in at the end is the key to a super-chunky blender salsa. Don’t worry about the perfect dice; your guests will be scooping up this dip too quickly to notice your knife skills.
Pair our recipe for Watermelon-Mango Salsa with Crunchy Jerk Tacos, or serve with a hearty pita chip for dipping. We love this refreshing salsa anytime of year, but it’s especially suited for summertime picnics and get-togethers. Friends and family will rave over the fresh, tropical flavors with just the right amount of kick. 
It’s actually one that I shared on the blog a few years ago. But — like many of the recipes around here lately while I’ve been busy with wedding planning — it’s one that I recently re-photographed and updated to share with those of you who might have missed it the first time around, because I’m convinced that everyone needs this recipe in their lives.
Good stuff. Was looking for a way to use late season tomatoes and pepppers from the garden and I definitely found it. Great recipe! Added a few more jalepenos for a little extra kick. Thanks for posting it.
I’m so glad you stopped by! You may have noticed a fresh look and some helpful new features around here. My site is full of healthy, easy, time-tested recipes, and now it’ll be easier to find both new recipes and old favorites.

The perfect topping for my Mexican Shrimp Tacos, pupusas, to spoon over a gorgeous piece of salmon, grilled chicken, peppercorn steak, or simply served as an appetizer/dip with your favorite chips or nachos. 
This was a delicious way to use ripe tomatoes. I decided to make this at the last minute to serve with pork carnitas, rice, and tortillas. I’m so glad I did – this salsa made the meal. It had a full, robust flavor and was the perfect complement to the other items served.
Josh made some tasty fried green tomatoes and we were pretty pleased with the results. But we were so into this fresh salsa that we had to share it with you first.  And it’s just so easy to make. The first step is to cut up the veggies, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and pop them in the oven to roast.  Because we roast them at such a high temperature, the roasting process doesn’t take very long. Just 15-20 minutes depending on the size of your veggie pieces.  What you gain from roasting is a smoother, darker flavor instead of the sharpness that some fresh salsas have from the flavors of the raw onion, garlic and tomatoes.
I like your method for skinning the tomatoes, I just do not know if it will work for pressure canning salsa ? Cooling them quick keeps them from cooking any further after blanching . Also if pressure canning you can add more cilantro and chilies ( chipotles in adobo ) are a excellent addition . Cheers !
Or how about a combination of tomato and fruit like orange, tomato and red onion salsa. In one of my favorite New York Italian restaurants, they served a grilled veal chop with traditional salsa piquant. And if you’re hungry and in a hurry, a simple fresh tomato salsa on top of a baked potato is delicious.
If you can’t add honey, use a tiny bit of a powdered sweetener. Sweet flavor takes away some of the hot spicy power of the pepper from the capsaicin. Having more pepper in the salsa makes it taste better but the sweetener takes away some of the sting. Enjoy!
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.
Hi Kellie, You could can this but food safety guidelines do recommend acidifying tomatoes prior to canning because of their natural pH level. Olive oil is considered acidic, but I’m not sure if the given amount would be enough to guarantee safety. Following is an excerpt from The National Center for Home Food Preservation, which might provide a little more insight. I hope this helps!
I absolutely love this recipe.  I made a double batch and it tasted fabulous and the consistency was perfect.  I was wondering what you would add to this recipe to make a medium heat salsa?  Thank you, thank you, thank you!
