Fire Grilled Salsa #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone!

Happy Sunday to you!  Today I am back with the crew at #SundaySupper, and it feels good to be back.  Today’s special assignment was to make something to preserve the harvest with summers fresh produce.  When it comes to canning, it’s really not my thing.  I hate standing in front of a hot-pot of boiling water, especially when it’s hot out, blah!  However, I may give it a go this fall.  I canned tomatoes once and it was great opening a can of fresh tomatoes in the winter, so I’m thinking for sure I am going to do that this year, but right now when it has been in the 100’s, canning is out for me.  But I did make a dish that you could preserve for at least a few weeks.  Not sure if it is cannable, since I don’t know much about canning, but honestly it’s to good not to eat right now.

Fire Grilled Salsa

This is my Fire Grilled Salsa!  You know how I LOVE my Mexican and when I saw some tomatoes on the counter that needed to be used, my first thought was salsa.  I love nothing better than a good salsa to dip my chips in, or top it on tacos, chicken, burgers and more. The salsa has a nice medium heat to it.  The day I made it, it was hot!!  Wowwee!!!   But by the second day the heat from the jalapenos calmed down and it wasn’t so spicy.  When you take a bite you get a nice light smoky flavor of all of the vegetables, than slight kick of heat right at the end, which I like.  So I recommend having the salsa on the 2nd day, if you don’t like the heat!

Fire Grilled Salsa

The salsa is made with fresh vegetables from the Farmers Market, it consists of tomatoes, onions, garlic and a jalapeno.  I charred my vegetables on the grill until they were slightly burnt.  Yup, this is the best time to burn your veggies, but don’t burn them to a crisp!  :)     The flavors of the charred vegetables, gave the salsa a slightly smoky flavor which is incredible. I’m telling you this is the easiest salsa to make!  Once my vegetables were done, I threw them all in a blender, added some seasonings and blended it all together  It couldn’t get much easier than that!!

Fire Grilled Salsa

I stored my salsa in nice little mason jar, which held it perfectly.  I kind of have a thing for mason jars.  I don’t know why, by I find them so cute!!  Everything looks better in a mason jar!  Just look at all the flavors.

Fire Grilled Salsa

I certainly enjoyed this recipe this past week.  I have had Mexican 4 nights this week, just so I had an excuse to have my salsa.  I truly love it and I am for sure going to be making this one again and again!!  I really love how simple it is.  There is no excuse to not make this one.  The salsa has a really nice restaurant quality and way better than anything you get in a jar.  So if you have that grill going, add some tomatoes, onion and garlic, even if you have a little quantity of vegetables and just make a small batch of salsa.  I’m telling you if you’re a salsa fan, you’ll like this one!

Now it’s time to check out what everyone else is preserving this season.  I can’t wait to see, maybe I’ll get inspired and do a little preserving myself?

Have a great rest of the weekend!

Toodles,

Jennifer

  1. I think I could eat this for a soup! It looks fabulous with all those fresh, wonderful ingredients!

  2. Awesome! I’ve been looking for recipes to use my jalapenos. Now I need some fresh picked tomatoes and I can get to salsa-making.

  3. Can’t wait to make this one. I love homemade salsa. Your salsa bowl is super cute too!

  4. I am not generally a big fan of salsa, but this one sounds really delicious. So it is definitely going into my list of recipes to try.

    In my former life I did a lot of canning, including making jam and pickles. You could probably can this using just a hot water bath, because tomatoes are acid, and the acid is what allows you to can with a hot water bath instead of needing a pressure cooker. Jams & jellies, and anything with sufficient acid in it, can be done with a hot water bath. If you get into canning non-acid things like green beans or mushrooms or potatoes, or pumpkin butter, you will need to use a pressure cooker.

  5. I could live on salsa! Yours looks fabulous!

  6. Great salsa! I can tell it must have tone of flavor.

  7. Im pretty sure that I could just drink this salsa! Who needs chips lol. Great idea to fire grill the produce. Welcome back!

  8. Pinning this and making it for my annual sangria party that is coming up next month! Hot salsa and cold sangria? Perfect :)

  9. Awesome, I use salsa as a salad dressing, pasta sauce, and veggie dip so this is perfect for me!

  10. Oh myyyy what a GREAT and easy way to make a flavorful salsa! YUM!

  11. Diana @EatMoveShine says:

    I’ve tried making salsa in the past, but everyone said it wasn’t hot enough. Now I know the secret!!! Love this recipe!

  12. LOVE the idea of grilling the veggies for a salsa, I can’t wait to try this soon! The smoky flavour sounds amazing.

  13. Yum! I think salsa is one of the best ways to preserve summer tomatoes!!

  14. Fantastic recipe! I was considering getting a pressure canner just for tomatoes and salsa. But who am I kidding, I’d probably go through it so quickly I can just keep it in the fridge.

  15. This salsa looks so delicious! I am excited to try this.

  16. What a beautiful salsa! We love making our own, and I’m really excited to give your recipe a try!

  17. I’ve never made from scratch salsa but this looks amazing. I’m definitely going to give this one a try.

  18. I adore salsa, but haven’t made my own – now I am going to! Thank you for such a great recipe!

  19. I am addicted to this type of salsa. I make a version of this for my Taco Stall and it sells really well.

  20. Jennifer, this probably tastes a thousand times better than the storebought, jarred stuff! I’m always so disappointed in that salsa. I love that bright, fresh, healthy salsa can be made so easily at home!
