This recipe looks delicious and I cant wait to try it out with my new blender! I absolutely love my Blender! I have had it about a year and have never had any issues. I have been making all different kinds of meals. I still make a lot of smoothies with it but I have been making my own soups and even peanut butter!

Slow Cooker Restaurant Style Garden Salsa has so many delicious and fresh ingredients and uses up all of those garden tomatoes. It is so addicting you won’t be able to get enough! It is also perfect f (Fresh Ingredients Recipes)
No, sorry, I haven’t. Skinning 22 pounds of tomatoes without blanching sounds like a pain in the backside. I know some folks skip peeling and just chop up the tomatoes. If you don’t mind more chewy salsa and skin bits, that would be another option.
Hi, Sommer, I was pointed to your blog by Cory Kowalski. I immediately saved your detox soup recipe AND the salsa one. I love salsa and love making it, but I can’t eat as much as I’d like to because I have kidney disease (and tomatoes aren’t good for me). I am going to try making a salsa with an extra dose of tomatilos, substituting them for some of the tomatoes. I’ll let you know how it comes out. BTW, I can’t find a ‘follow’ button on your site — except pointing to Pinterest, which I know nothing about.
From a flavor perspective, pineapple juice would work fine. However, when canning, the lime juice is for added acidity, required for safe long term storage. I don’t know how the acidity levels in pineapple juice and lime compare, but if they are the same, you should be good. Lemon juice is an equal alternative to lime, so you could try that instead. Hope that helps!
I started hunting around for recipes, and came up with several that looked promising, but the one I settled on was from PickYourOwn.org. I just checked the link, and they’ve changed the recipe that’s posted, but I’ll be sticking with the one I have. I’m so glad I saved it to my home computer. This makes a mild salsa, thick with tomatoes. In 2013, we made seven batches. The boys love salsa. They are much bigger now than when this post was first written.
Looks and sounds delicious. Hopefully, I am going to make it this weekend. I enjoy salsa very much. Been looking for a great recipe for quite a while. The comments were all praising the recipe for its looks, texture, and taste, so how could I go wrong, right! Did I overlook the yield of this recipe? If not, how many pints does this make?
No big chunks, man! Big chunks are good when it comes to the fresh tomatoes in pico de gallo. But when it comes to regular salsa, which is generally made from canned tomatoes, I prefer more of a pureed, thin consistency.
I have never bough store salsa, my mom and I have always made lots of salsa every fall with our produce from our garden! I’m willing to give a few toes to bet it’s the best. salsa. ever. EVER! 🙂 However, it requires a lot more time and more romas than your recipe, so I stayed up last night after putting the kids to bed and made yours. I loved your trick of putting the romas in the oven – life changing! The salsa is delicious, thank you! I will definitely continue to make my mom’s recipe, but this recipe comes close and will stay in my recipe binder. 🙂 Thanks!
Now, be sure to taste it with a tortilla chip so you can get an accurate sense of the seasonings. Adjust as needed…but I hardly ever have to add anything at this point, beyond a little more cilantro. I never add more salt—there’s plenty on the chips!
2 Dice or pulse a few times in food processor: Place all of the ingredients in a food processor. Pulse only a few times, just enough to finely dice the ingredients, not enough to purée. If you don’t have a food processor, you can finely dice by hand.
In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, onions, celery and green pepper. In a small bowl, whisk the wine or apple juice, vinegar, oil, mustard seed, salt, coriander and pepper; pour over vegetables and toss to coat. Serve with chips. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 2-1/2 cups.
I have made salsa using this recipe twice now and its absolutely the best salsa I have ever eaten. I gave a jar to a few friends and they agree. They keep asking me when I’m making more. Luckily I have a large amount of Roma tomatoes from my garden this year. I planted extra so I would have enough to make this salsa. Thank you for this excellent recipe.
Looks like an awesome recipe; we’re trying it tonight. All of our garden tomatoes and peppers are ready for the task. I noticed that some folks were wondering about the tomatoe pounds to cooked cups conversion. I found out that 2 1/2 pounds (1.1 kg) tomatoes = 3 cups chopped and drained fresh tomatoes = 2 1/2 cups chopped and cooked tomatoes = 2 1/2 cups canned tomatoes in puree or juice. You can also substitute apple cider vinegar (ACV) for white vinegar. We mixed up the peppers too, since we like it spicy. Looking forward to a positive result. Thanks Jothan, I’ll let you know how it turns out and we’ll have to check out other recipes that you’ve posted. Cheers!
A. Yes, salsa, tends to be at peak quality for about 6 months, then ok for another 6 months. After that, the USDA says it is still safe to eat as long as the seal is intact, but it darkens and becomes mushier than most people would like! So, if you have an older jar, and there’s no leakage, a good seal, and everything looks ok, open it and try!
Hi Danielle – thanks for being interested! I’ve been posting a few updates to Facebook and Instagram but the latest total was over $32,000! It’s been incredible. Additionally the eBook has raised almost $15,000!
Okay, you’ll want to break out gloves for this next step. Trust me, you will want gloves for this part. The one time I didn’t use them I couldn’t sleep that night because of the burning sensation in my hands that no amount of washing could remove!
Thanks, Mell, for this recipe! I love your method of removing the skins from the tomatoes. How close to the broiler do you put the tomatoes? I think I had them too far away. Still had to work at getting the skin off. Thank you!
Found your version slightly modified (see below) on-line for my kids high school class project. Made it and everyone fell in love with it!!! We like our salsa a bit more spicy so would suggest a simple but flavorful modification:
Sure I love Pico de Gallo, trust me when I say I eat it with a fork for lunch some days (just ask the Mexican stand at my farmers market, what I eat for lunch most Thursdays, lol), however this salsa?? This salsa I can drink with a straw. I haven’t…yet, I literally think about doing just that!
At right is a picture of tomatoes from my garden – they are so much better than anything from the grocery store. And if you don’t have enough, a pick-your-own farm is the pace to go! At right are 4 common varieties that will work:
Made this last night and doubled the recipe. It only made 9 pints instead of 12. That’s not my concern though, it was the strong vinegar flavor. Does this dissipate after canning/setting for a period of time? Should I have added more sugar to modify prior to canning? I just didn’t want to have a sweet salsa either.
oh girl…you are giving me salsa cravings! I always thought I was a chunky pico de gallo salsa type girl, until I started making it like this. I’ve never added rotel to mine, and honey either! changing it up next time! I love seeing those specks of heavenly cilantro!
Hi, I’m Averie and I’m so glad you’ve found my site! You’ll find fast and easy recipes from dinners to desserts that taste amazing and are geared for real life. Nothing fussy or complicated, just awesome tasting dishes everyone loves!
I’m not 100% positive, but I think so. Basically the recipe needs enough acidity to can properly and be food safe. You might google and see if you can sub lime juice in canning recipes for the lemon juice.
Can’t wait to try this! On another note, do you know how I can get your recipes to print without the ad in the middle? The ad used to show up but wouldn’t print. Now it’s printing and I can’t get rid of it. I’ve tried going to “ad options” but I believe that just changes the types of ads I see, not taking the ads away. It’s just annoying that a lot of the recipes are printing in 2 pages now because of it. Any direction you can give would be great. Thanks!
Place onion and garlic in a food processor; cover and pulse four times. Add the tomatoes, cilantro, salt and jalapenos. Cover and process until desired consistency. Chill until serving. Serve with chips. Yield: 3-1/2 cups.

Rachel, you can substitute jalapeños for the serrano chiles and get great results. Try the recipe with 2 jalapeños and if the salsa is too spicy reduce it to one. Removing the seeds and veins from the chiles reduces the heat too. Cheers!
I freeze tomatoes all the time, it is my simple way of peeling them, once they are thawed the peel comes right off. I have been canning 30 plus years. I freeze as I pick them and make 1 huge batch rather than several little batches.
One important thing I learned about salsas is that using FRESH ingredients is the only way to go! Many “restaurant style” Mexican salsa recipes circulating the Internet call for canned tomatoes, tomato paste, or seasonings. These recipes wont yield a truly fresh Mexican salsa!
Delicious!!! As far a second knowing how many tomatoes to use, you mentioned somewhere that it was https://great-salsa.com/ sheet pans of halved tomatoes. Using this information, I collected my garden tomatoes on my counter by placing them on my baking sheet. When I had my baking sheet full plus another half, I knew I had enough tomatoes (or at least that I would be close once I drained them). Turned out great!! Even my daughter who can tell handle spicy foods LOVES this salsa!
