Restaurant-Style Salsa (Pioneer Woman)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by AmyZoe

I must say I was skeptical of making salsa with other than fresh tomatoes, but i was pleasantly surprised. Like Pioneer Woman, I also don't like most of the store-bought salsa because of the vinegar flavor. I used diced tomatoes instead of whole and a lot more cilantro, but the recipe is posted as written. Recipe courtesy of The Pioneer Woman Cooks, Food From My Frontier.

Top Review by ChefDLH

This salsa is very good. It rivals restaurant recipes and tastes fresh. The ingredients meld even better when saving it till the next day. Ree's recipe from the food network site shows using seeds and membranes for the salsa. That made a very spicy salsa. To tone it down seed and take out the membranes. Otherwise it goes beautifully with food, chips, tacos, eggs, etc. It makes a large batch as well so perfect for a potluck or party. Thanks for posing AmyZoe! Enjoy ChefDLH
