Easy Salsa Recipe and
A Fermented Tomato Salsa Recipe

An easy salsa recipe can be a tomato salsa recipe that has been fermented.  This is a new and exciting way to experience a salsa recipe.

A tomatillo salsa recipe can be a refreshing change from the more traditional tomato salsa recipe.  And a tomatillo salsa is a green salsa recipe that uses the tomatillo as the main ingredient.

An easy salsa recipe will only require a few fresh ingredients - whether your making a fermented salsa recipe or a more traditional salsa recipe.

Fermented Tomato Salsa Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3 to 4 cups Ripe Organic Tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1 Onion (diced)
  • 1 Bell Pepper (chopped)
  • 1 Garlic Clove (chopped)
  • 1 Bunch Cilantro (rough chopped)
  • Cumin or Other Spices (to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp. of Sea Salt

The hard part of this recipe will be waiting to eat your salsa.

The best part, is that a fermented salsa recipe will have a longer shelf life than fresh salsa.

Instructions:

Add ingredients to a bowl and massage salt into ingredients.  Then press ingredients into a glass jar to release juices and get rid of any air pockets.

Fill glass jar until 1 inch from the top and add a weight of choice (clean rock, etc.) so that ingredients stay covered with juices.

Put on a lid and ferment salsa for 3 days on your kitchen counter or on a room temperature shelf.  You can then store fermented salsa in your refrigerator for a few months.

This is my new and favorite way to eat salsa - the fermented way!  This way you'll get a bunch of probiotics along with your easy salsa recipe.

You can also make a lacto-fermented tomato salsa recipe using whey which cuts down a little on the amount of salt used.

A Tomatillo Salsa Recipe

A tomatillo salsa recipe is a green salsa recipe that is very common in Mexico.

This green salsa recipe uses the tomatillo fruit instead of tomatoes.

Tomatillos have a very distinct tart flavor.  Tomatillos can be used raw or cooked in a tomatillo salsa recipe.

Even though this is a somewhat cooked green salsa recipe, I think this easy salsa recipe is outstanding.

What is a Tomatillo?

A tomatillo is sometimes called a green Mexican tomato.  It looks just like a small green tomato and comes with a paper-like husk which is inedible.

Like the tomato, this fruit is also a member of the nightshade family.  And tomatillos are related to tomatoes as well as the Cape Gooseberry.

Usually, tomatillos are used in their green or unripe state which gives a green salsa recipe a tart citrus flavor.

However, when a tomatillo ripens it can be yellow to purple in color and will have a sweeter taste.

Look for tomatillos that are surrounded by a light brown and fresh looking husk which indicates freshness.

Colorful Easy Salsa Recipe

Ingredients:

  • A Variety of Tomatoes (cut in half or quartered)
  • Sweet Peppers (a few tiny peppers or 1 large)
  • 1 Slice of Onion
  • Pinch of Cumin
  • Optional:  Fresh Jalapeno or Pickled Jalapeno (to taste)

Instructions:

Use a small food processor to blend your salsa.  Be sure to add the tomatoes in last and pulse to make a chunky tomato salsa recipe.

If you want a more rich tasting tomato salsa recipe use organic tomatoes instead of the commercial bland type of tomato.

This is a different type of easy salsa recipe.  Sweet peppers are added for a different depth of flavor and extra color to make this easy salsa recipe more interesting.

Also, a variety of tomatoes can be used like cherry tomatoes, yellow tomatoes, and orange tomatoes.

You will find a great variety of tomatoes at most grocery stores and farmer's markets these days.  Please stay away from tomatoes that are not organic!

You will even find heirloom tomatoes which can be greenish to purple in color - to increase the depth of flavor of your easy salsa recipes.
