There are some many options when throwing together homemade salsa. Because tomatoes are plentiful right now, I am making a lot of fresh salsa, as always the exact ingredients vary based on what I have on hand.
Let’s break the ingredients into two categories:
Mandatory – tomatoes, onion, jalepeno(or any hot pepper), cilantro, garlic, salt & pepper
Optional – smoked hatch chilies or try smoking any/all ingredients, bell peppers ( I prefer a yellow or orange bell pepper), fresh basil, sun dried tomatoes, pineapple or other fruit like strawberries
