Freezer Salsa

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Kate in Ontario

This recipe is a great reason for growing tomatoes and peppers in your garden. It was published in Chatelaine and I made a few small changes. Place a cup or two in freezer bags, press flat and freeze. Thaws quickly for snack attacks.

This is a greater starter recipe for salsa! I loved liquedy salsa with good chunks in it and this recipe definitely gives you that! The salsa itself is very mild so I spent some time doctoring mine to suit the spicy tastes of my family. But, if you are looking for a quick, easy salsa recipe, this is for you!
