Gluten Free Living – 2015
I’ve got a scrumptious recipe for you today. Pioneer Woman’s Restaurant-Style Salsa, no less! Yes, it is amazing and so, so very simple. It starts with canned tomatoes and diced tomatoes with green chilies, toss in some cilantro, lime, garlic, jalapeno pepper, onion and cumin and you’re in for one wild ride. Restaurant-Style Salsa is one of the best homemade salsa recipes you’ll ever eat.
The first time I tasted this recipe was a couple of years ago. A friend brought it for dinner along with Homemade Dinner Rolls. I had served Mexican Lasagna that night and served it along with Corn and Green Bean Casserole, Butternut Squash Bake and Raspberry Almond Bars. I begged her for both of those recipes and promptly got them. Although I’ve made the rolls several times, this is the first time I finally got around to making the salsa.
We had a group of youth from our church over for a swim party last month, so I thought this would be a great time to make up some salsa and chips. One taste and I was hooked. This salsa is the real deal. Everyone gobbled it down like crazy. Not only that, Restaurant-Style Salsa is healthy, low calorie, gluten free and vegan!
If you’re in the mood for a quick Tex-Mex fix, I can’t recommend this salsa highly enough. The flavors are superb and as I stated earlier, it’s just so E-A-S-Y. Give it a try and you’ll see for yourself.
Pioneer Woman’s Restaurant Style Salsa is incredibly good for any kind of party.
