Mexican salsa is one of those simple yet flavorful foods that cause some people to lose their self control. Pair it with some homemade chips and guacamole, and I’m one of the lost souls. A basic salsa starts with fresh seeded tomatoes. Some people prefer the skins off, which is an extra step in preparation. Finely diced garlic, onions, and peppers of varying heat, willingly marry well with cilantro and citrus. Mexican salsa is a quick and healthy treat that can be enjoyed anytime of the year.
To add dimension to your Mexican salsa, try tossing in other elements. One suggestion is to add chimichurri to your salsa. Chimichurri is made from delicious ingredients such as parsley, cilantro, oregano and cumin.
Another suggested add-in is chermoula. Chermoula is a zesty spice blend that is similar to chimichurri, but it includes other complex flavors such as red pepper flakes, saffron, ginger and coriander.
Alternately, Mexican salsa can be added to other dishes to add more flavor and texture. Next time you make a batch of arrabbiata, throw in a cup of fresh Mexican salsa. Once you add a cup of fresh Mexican salsa to your New York-style chowder, you may never want chowder any other way.
Versatile, fresh and healthy.
