Homemade salsa is the best salsa! My whole family loves this easy homemade salsa recipe that my daughter created. Grab the recipe and try it for yourself!

Easy Homemade Salsa

If there’s one thing our Jr. Chef Charli knows, it’s how to make a delicious salsa. She keeps the ingredients simple – tomatoes, sweet peppers, onion, cilantro, lime juice and garlic salt – which all gets blended together in the food processor for a restaurant-style salsa you can’t help but dip into again and again.

No food processor? No problem! You can simply chop all ingredients for a chunkier Pico de Gallo-style salsa. Grab chips for dipping or top off tacos, nachos and more with this simple, delicious salsa!

We also like to use cucumbers and bell peppers for dipping. I mean, at the end of the day is salsa really bad on anything? I think not 🙂 Especially this easy homemade salsa!

Ask anyone who has tried Charli’s salsa and they’ll agree, it gets two thumbs up! It’s usually the first thing to disappear at family gatherings or our annual Super Bowl party.

Nutrition Tip: Good news: Veggie-packed salsa counts as a serving of vegetables! This one is loaded with vitamin C. Don’t forget to keep your tomatoes on the counter (refrigerating them dulls the flavor).

Getting our kids in the kitchen is a great way to get them to try new foods and build confidence. When they create a delicious meal, they’re not only more likely to eat it, seeing their family enjoying what they made will give them a confidence boost that will last.
