The best kitchen tip I can give for anyone who loves salsa is to always have fresh cilantro on hand. Whether you grow a small pot on the windowsill, in the garden, or buy a bunch at the store this is the best way to make store brand salsa taste like the Mexican restaurant.
I love salsa with fresh Cilantro at my favorite Mexican restaurant. We devour it and ask for more. There are other tips out there but they require you to cook and chop more ingredients. I buy store bought salsa because I do not can my own salsa (or any food for that matter) and I do not want to work for it. I want to find the easiest way to food taste better and make like better.
Fresh Cilantro makes it taste fresh. It can be the most boring salsa ever but when you add some chopped up cilantro it comes alive! My teenage son loves salsa so we go through at least 2 jars a week and he loves to have fresh Cilantro mixed in.
We are medium salsa lovers. You could do this with many brands. Tried buying the salsa already canned with Cilantro but the taste was not the same. I use this trick with the cheap store brand (either Giant or Kroger) and it really makes it taste fresh.
Creating. Inspiring. Gardening without the rules!
