Light a grill. Brush the onion slices with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the onion slices and the green tomatoes over high heat, turning once, until nicely charred; about 6 minutes for the onion and 8 minutes for the tomato.
Once the ingredients are no longer hot to the touch, place them, along with the salt and cilantro, into a food processor and blend it until it reached the desired consistency (you may have too many ingredients to fit them all into the food processor, so be prepared to break the recipe up into two batches).
We make salsa using our charcoal grill- just put the tomatoes, green peppers, onions, whatever you want, directly onto the hot coals. After about an hour, take them off and let them cool, then rub off the charred skin (leave some on for more smokey flavor!), put them in a food processor with some seasonings and voila! We usually roast a head (?) of garlic at the same time and throw half of it in the salsa.
Cut pork shoulder into 2 (4- to 5-inch-thick) pieces. Combine chile powder, black pepper, cumin, cloves, sugar, and 1 tablespoon of the salt in a small bowl. Sprinkle mixture over all sides of pork pieces. Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over high. Add pork pieces, and cook until deep golden brown on all sides, about 2 minutes per side. Place pork in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker; add vinegar and oregano.
This salsa is wonderful. My husband says it’s the best he’s had. I also left the sugar in but used about half of the amount called for in the recipe. I also added a little salt and some red pepper flakes (since I had no more jalapenos).
I would imagine it could be canned but keep in mind I have no experience with canning so I am really just making a guess. You will have to check with a more reliable source that knows about canning tomatoes. It does freeze very well though. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.
I am a real believer in the fact that using quality ingredients especially in the simplest dishes, will take them to a whole new level of awesomeness! And when making salsa nothing beats using fragrant heirloom tomatoes! The absolute best!
I promise you, if there is a will, there is a way. I will sneak salsa into almost ANYTHING. Okay, not like dessert or anything, because that’s just weird. But pretty much everything else. I’ve used it as dressing on a salad. Healthier, and so much tastier than salad dressing. And just plain old, gosh-darn good. I almost always have to have salsa with scrambled eggs in the morning — yuh huh. I scramble the eggs up in a skillet, toss in some crushed up tortilla chips (just like a tablespoon or three) and some cheese and let it all melt up. Put all of that on a warm tortilla and top with a couple tablespoons of this blender salsa. You’ve got to try it. It is seriously the best breakfast taco of your life. If I could, I would eat this for every meal of the day. Every. single. day.
Salsa is one of the best things you can have in your pantry for quick meals and snacks – it really has saved us many times from the drive-through. Every time we’re in a rush, or late coming home and really hungry, and I think grabbing some food along the way is a good idea, I remember that we always have chips, cheese and salsa and sometimes tortillas. It takes about 10 minutes to make nachos or quesadillas with salsa as our vegetables.
Samantha, it really depends on the tomatoes. We started with really red ripe tomatoes. If the tomatoes are a little more pale the salsa tends to be on the orange side. It will be just as tasty though. Cheers!
Going to be making this for my fiancé tonight. I’ve made red salsa and pico, but NEVER salsa verde. Lol. He is a green sauce kinda guy. So I figured why not surprise home with a batch?? 🤣 I will definitely update you! Thanks for sharing? Can I roast the tomatillos, or do I have to boil the ?
Rachael, did you still put the full amount of cider vinegar into the batch of salsa and when putting into jars, individually add the lemon juice to each jar…if so, were they pint and how did this batch turn out? Thanks, Nancy
It happens to us all. We’re out of fresh tomatoes and we need salsa. Maybe we need salsa for a get together. we need it for a recipe. Maybe we’re just craving it with some chips. I’m here to help save the day by letting you know that you can totally make great tasting salsa with canned tomatoes! Let’s check out this easy cooking recipe that you’re going to love!
I’m so excited to try this recipe out. The reviews are fantastic! It’s my first year canning and I was wondering if I can use quart size bottles? We go through salsa like crazy around here. Will I need to adjust the processing time at all? Thank you so much. I know anything you blog about will be amazing and turns out every time! 
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.
A. Yes, salsa, tends to be at peak quality for about 6 months, then ok for another 6 months. After that, the USDA says it is still safe to eat as long as the seal is intact, but it darkens and becomes mushier than most people would like! So, if you have an older jar, and there’s no leakage, a good seal, and everything looks ok, open it and try!
After jars cool, check seals by pressing middle of lid with your finger (if lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary).  Put any unsealed jars in the refrigerator and use first.
I have a salsa recipe that I have made for a few years now, it requires a lot of chopping! You can definitely tell it is homemade. I was so excited to see this recipe! I tried it tonight and my family LOVED it! They said they would have thought it was from a jar, but they were at the table while I was making it! Thanks for sharing!
“No chopping, dicing, or mincing here! My family has been making this easy and fresh salsa for years. Both my father and I have won salsa contests with this recipe as the base and have tweaked it with the optional seasonings listed. You can also control the heat by seeding the peppers or omitting the serrano, but we prefer the heat and flavor of both peppers. I usually add a pinch of sugar which intensifies the flavor of the peppers but my father doesn’t. A fantastic basic recipe to play with… so easy, you’ll never buy jarred salsa again!”
I have made this Roasted Tomato Salsa at least 20 times, and every time a friend has asked me for this recipe. It is delicious but also so easy to prepare and the roasting of the tomatoes, onions and pepper highlight the flavors.
OH! And your peeling method??? Wow wow wow THANK YOU! When I can tomato sauce, I freeze the whole tomatoes first. Then as they thaw the skins slip off, and the mushy tomatoes are perfect for cooking down into sauce. But I am so excited to do this instead of the blanching method!
