Easy Salsa Recipe and A Fermented Tomato Salsa Recipe
An easy salsa recipe can be a traditional tomato salsa recipe that has been fermented. This is a new and exciting way to experience a salsa recipe.
And a tomatillo salsa recipe can be a refreshing change from the more traditional tomato
salsa recipe. A tomatillo salsa is a green salsa recipe that uses the tomatillo as the main ingredient instead of tomatoes.
Just remember an easy salsa recipe will only require a few fresh ingredients when you are making a fermented salsa recipe or a more traditional salsa recipe.
Fermented Tomato Salsa Recipe
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
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 for 3 days on your kitchen counter or a room temperature shelf. You can then store your fermented salsa in the refrigerator for a few months.
This is my new and favorite way to eat salsa - the fermented way!
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.

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. 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.
