Easy 4 Ingredient Homemade Salsa Recipe


Schools out for summer!  Wow the past school year went by fast, but I am looking forward to a summer filled with fun adventures and play dates with friends.  I like to have some quick recipes for those impromptu gatherings when the kids are playing nicely and the adults can enjoy a few minutes to sit and chat on a nice summer day.  I know I will be whipping up this easy 4 ingredient homemade salsa this summer.

I grow chives in my garden so those are always on hand.  We will be trying to grow our own tomatoes for the first time this year.  Hopefully by the end of the summer I will not only be able to whip up homemade salsa in under 10 minutes, but it will be with ingredients from my own garden too.

This recipe is a variation of the Fresh Tomato Salsa from Kraft Canada.  If you like a little heat to your salsa add in a chopped jalapeno pepper, or if you have cilantro in your garden you could use that instead of the chives.easy homemade salsa recipe

Whatever you choose you will have fresh tasty salsa in minutes.  I was a little worried about it being “tangy” since it is made with Italian dressing, but there was no need for concern.  The pairing of the Kraft Italian dressing with tomatoes, onions and chives creates a perfect savoury salsa that both the kids and I loved.  Here is what you need to make this easy homemade salsa recipe:easy homemade salsa recipe

    I would sub the cilantro because I love cilantro. This is an interesting recipe. I never would have thought of the Italian dressing for this. Sounds yummy.
