Red Salsa


Blanca also made a Red Salsa in the South Arm Community Kitchen.  The primary ingredient in the Red Salsa is tomatoes which give it the red colour.  However, the day we made the Red Salsa, it did not turn out very red as the cilantro’s green colour seemed to dominate the red of the tomatoes.

The Red Salsa can be made just like the Green Salsa, i.e., boil the ingredients first, then blend and reboil.  However, Blanca showed us another way which blends the ingredients first, then boil.

Ingredients

  • Tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • rough chopped onion
  • chopped cilantro
  • serranos (optional)
  • salt to taste

Instructions

redsalsa-3-200x300Combine chopped onion, tomatoes and cilantro into a blender.  Add water for blending and it does not matter how much water you add as you need to boil the blended ingredients later.
