Summer Fest: Five Fresh Tomato Salsa Recipes

With summer in full swing, what better way to spend an evening than with a few cocktails  and chips and dip? Skip the store-bought brand of salsa and use in-season tomatoes to make these fresh versions and you’ll never go back to jarred.

1. Salsa

Alton’s salsa is as easy to put together as it is to eat. Combine chopped Roma tomatoes, garlic, jalapenos, pepper, onion, ancho chiles, olive oil and lime juice along with chili powder, salt and pepper before letting the mixture sit in the refrigerator overnight to get the full flavor infusion.

 

2. Pico de Gallo
The name of this dip translates to “rooster’s beak,” and it originally referred to a salad of jicama, peanuts, oranges and onions. But today if you ask for pico de gallo, you’ll get the familiar cilantro-flecked combination of chopped tomato, onion and fresh chiles. Also known as “salsa Mexicana,” the key to this concoction is finding firm ripe tomatoes and seeding them, adding plenty of lime juice and salt, and not skimping on the chiles.

3. Basic Salsa Fresca

This version of salsa fresca (also known as pico de gallo) features raw and seeded tomatoes mixed with garlic, onion, jalapenos, cumin and cilantro. It’s still rather chunky so you can serve it with chips as a dip or with dinner as a condiment.

4. Tomato Salsa

All you need are four ingredients (plus salt and pepper) and a blender to make Ellie’s pureed salsa. Simply put seeded plum tomatoes, pepper, lime juice and olive oil in a blender, and then puree until smooth.

5. Salsa Roja
Tyler’s salsa is chock-full of chiles: dried anchos, Anaheims and chipotles. They’re combined with charred tomatoes, onions and garlic to create a smoky salsa.
