How to Make Homemade Salsa

Summertime is the perfect time for making homemade salsa. With so many fresh fruits and vegetables available at farmer’s markets, produce stands and in your own back yard, you can play with a variety of flavors.

All a homemade salsa recipe requires is fresh ingredients, some sharp knives and your imagination. You choose the ingredients you want to include and you decide how chunky you want to cut the vegetables (and fruits!).
