Among all the salsa recipes that we’ve tried so far, this is indeed, the Best Blender Salsa Recipe! 

Best Blender Salsa Recipe (5 minutes!)

If you’re curious about what makes the “best” salsa, you’re on the right page.

It’s not about the flavorings that we add, nor the time it takes to make this recipe. Because, that’s just a bonus! This recipe only takes literally five minutes to make and that even includes the time to gather all your ingredients and prepare them.

But, it’s the tomatoes that make it “the best!” While using canned tomatoes can be more convenient, it’s not really that worth it. And clearly, using a garden grown, ripe, and fresh tomatoes is the most important key here. These tomatoes will provide the best flavor and nutrition compared to the canned ones.

Thus, when you stop by the farmers’ market, be sure to grab some fresh tomatoes, especially during May through October when they’re typically in season. 

When you get home, rinse the tomatoes and follow this recipe. If you’re not in the mood for salsa though, you can absolutely refrigerate or freeze them for later use. Or, turn them into fancy little gifts!
