How to Make Salsa without a Food Processor or Blender

Here are a few ways to make salsa without a food processor or blender:

  • Finely chop produce then toss with seasonings and vinegar.

  • Dice, then mash tomatoes with a fork or squeeze with your hands until juices are released and the tomatoes soften considerably. Combine with finely chopped peppers, onion and garlic. Toss all with vinegar and spices.

  • Mix and mash ingredients with a mortar and pestle, in batches, until you have a salsa with the texture of your choosing.

Top Tips for Making the Best Salsa

  • If possible, I highly recommend using fresh organic produce for best results.

  • If you like a touch of spicy, leaves seeds and stems attached to peppers.

  • If you do not care for spicy, remove the seeds and stems from the peppers before blending, or simply omit a few peppers from the recipe.

  • In a pinch, fresh parsley can be used in place of cilantro. It will taste slightly differently, but will still be delicious.

  • I love the way fresh cumin seeds taste in this recipe, but in a pinch ground cumin can be used instead - replace the cumin seed with 1 tbs + 1 tsp of ground cumin.

  • Lemon or lime juice can be used in place of apple cider vinegar for similar results.

  • I find a touch of sweetness in salsa recipe to really round out the flavors. Coconut sugar works beautifully, but can be replaced with regular cane sugar, honey or maple syrup.

  • For a sugar-free salsa, simply omit the sweetener or replace with a sugar-free sweetener like this one that I I love.

  • I find two teaspoons of salt to be about the perfect amount for this recipe, but I do recommend salting to suit your tastes since there can be some variances in volume of ingredients!

  • This recipe stores well in lidded jars or containers in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.
