Summer Salsa, Pioneer Woman Style

The Horvath's love chips and salsa.  I have been making my own pico de gallo for a couple years now, but I hadn't tried my hand at restaurant style salsa yet.

The Pioneer Woman is one of my go-to sites for recipes.  I love that she uses a ton of step-by-step photographs with the recipes that she posts.  I have attempted about a dozen of her recipes, and every single one has been good.

I also have her cookbook, which I waited in line for 6 hours at Border's in Dallas to have autographed.  Does that make me crazy?  Probably, but it was fun times waiting in that line with two other equally crazy girls.

You can go here for the step-by-step instructions (with photos!) for the salsa, and find her printable recipe for Restaurant Style Salsa here.

Some changes you can make to the recipe are to use fresh tomatoes instead of canned.  I cut this recipe in half because I wasn't sure we could eat it all before it went preservatives!  I also used 3 cloves of garlic instead of one, and added some chopped onions that I didn't process quite as much as the rest.

Yummy Summer Salsa!

Yummm! I love her site too. Although the recipes I've tried have been hit & miss - some have been good, some haven't. But I'll keep trying them because they all look amazing!!!

How was the salsa?

Hey Karah! I didn't say how the salsa was, did I? It turned out great! The flavor was really, really good, and it got better after about a day in the fridge. I personally don't like my salsa very runny, and I think I would drain the rotel next time.
