One of my favorite types of food to order out is Mexican. I love fresh salsas, warm tortilla, and everything in between. I have a strict homemade-only rule about guacamole in my house, and after perfecting this recipe.. I’ll never buy the jarred salsa again, either – homemade salsa all the way!
This Salsa can be used for a make-your-own taco night, over enchiladas, or over baked chicken for a fun and healthy take on an easy weeknight dinner. Important to note: this is not pico de gallo – there’s difference, I promise. Although the two might look similar – pico de gallo is chunkier and contains less liquid than this salsa recipe.
This salsa can stay in your fridge (in an airtight container, of course) for up to 10 days. It’s great with tortilla chips, quesadillas, or even over grilled chicken! It’s easy to make and really impresses. If you can’t use it all up, you can freeze it and use it at a later date.
In order to make my Cantina-Style Salsa, you need a few, simple ingredients:
- red onion
- white sugar
- kosher salt
