Stello's Fresh Garden Salsa


There is nothing quite as good as eating a garden-fresh tomato. The crisp and bold flavor can only be found this time of year at local produce stands or straight out of the backyard garden. When tomatoes are in season, you can create some of the best tasting sauces, salsa, and spreads. Today’s recipe is one of our favorite salsa recipes to use whenever the tomatoes are at their freshest.

Step 1 – Dice 6-8 medium to large tomatoes and place into a large bowl.

Step 2 – Once all tomatoes are diced, and into bowl, dump contents into a large strainer to drain off excess water and seeds. Once drained, dump the tomatoes back into the large bowl.

Step 3 – Finely dice up a large red onion and add into bowl.

Step 4 – Dice ½ Cup of Pickled Jalapeno Peppers and add into bowl.

Step 5 – Dice ¼ Cup of Fresh Cilantro and add into bowl.

Step 6 – Sprinkle in 2 packets of Taco Seasoning

Step 7 – Add 2-3 Cups of Stello Food’s Thick and Rich Bloody Mary Mix. The amount of mix can be altered to create either a thicker or thinner salsa. We prefer a thicker salsa, so we only use 2 cups of mix.

Step 8 – Add 3 Tablespoons of Diced Garlic

Step 9 - Mix all ingredients thoroughly and serve immediately

The measurements in this recipe represent our own personal preference. If you would like to have a spicey salsa, you can add more Jalapenos. If you are looking for a more mild flavor, you can cut back on the peppers, or even try Stello’s Fresh Squeezed Bloody Mary Mix, which is less spicey. Feel free to play with the amount of Bloody Mary mix to get the consistency that you prefer.  The nice thing about this salsa recipe is that you can tailor it to your own preference. We hope you enjoy.
