5 Salsa Recipes You Need to Try Now

By  | 
One staple in every Texan’s kitchen is salsa. Whether canned yourself or blended fresh from the garden, the magic that is salsa can be created in a variety of different ways. While you can’t ever have too much of a good thing, sometimes it’s fun to switch it up every once in awhile.

Classic Texas Salsa

Why mess with a good thing? This classic Texas salsa recipe is a great foundation for the savory salsa options that follow.

This recipe uses 1 small onion, 1 garlic clove, 2 jalapeños, 1 small bunch of cilantro, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of sugar, the juice and zest of a lime, and a 28-ounce can of tomato juice.

The ingredients are chopped by hand, and pulsed in a food processor until the ingredients reach a consistency that appears smooth, but still has delicious tiny bits of the vegetables.

Now, here are 5 untraditional salsa recipes, if you’re looking for a change of Pace. Pun not intended.

5. Grilled Pineapple Salsa

Because salsa is, at its heart, fairly acidic, citrus pairs perfectly with it. Tossing some grilled pineapple from the grill into the mix only makes it better.

In KneadingHome’s recipe, your usual salsa suspects are here: 1 pound tomatoes, 2 jalapeños, 3 garlic gloves (unpeeled), 1/2 onion, 1/3 cup cilantro, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. However, 1 small pineapple, grilled by setting it on the grill pan or on the grill itself, is the superstar here.

Pulsed in a food processor, or chopped finely by hand if you like a chunkier take on it, this salsa is perfect with chips, but also as a topping for grilled fish or chicken.

4. Blueberry Lime Salsa

While this recipe sounds a little out there, I can personally attest to how delicious it is. The combination of the tart blueberries with the lime and cilanto makes it amazing.
