Garden Salsa
By :The Complete Vegan Instant Pot Cookbook By Barb Musick
Salsa
Print Recipe
I find the salsa aisle in my local grocery store a bit overwhelming. So many brands and flavors to choose from, and how do I know it won’t be too spicy for my sometimes-wimpy palate? This is why, for barbecues and Mexican-themed dinners, I always make my own. It guarantees your salsa will be delicious and fresh, and I actually find it relaxing to chop all those veggies. This version is fairly mild, so feel free to add hotter chile peppers or chili powder.
