Homemade Tomato Salsa

by | Read time: 1 minute

Once you make it yourself, you won’t buy from a shelf! This homemade salsa recipe is easy to whip up and so tasty that you won’t go back to the jarred kind. Nothing premade beats fresh flavors! The ingredients and seasonings can be adjusted to your preferences, but this batch gets a zesty kick from cilantro and jalapenos and a subtle touch of sweetness from honey. For a variation, add in fruits like mango, peach or watermelon.
