Kitchen Hint of the Day! WEDNESDAY

February 10, 2021 at 6:00 AM | Posted in Kitchen Hints | Leave a comment

What can I add to salsa to make it better………….

Adding a little fresh lime juice and some minced cilantro can wake up even the sleepiest of salsas, ushering back in the flavor of just-squeezed citrus and herbs that taste like they came from a living plant.

For Tomatoes – Fresh tomato salsa is ideally made with firm, fleshy tomatoes. You can of course make the salsa with any kind of tomato, but the firm ones like Romas or hothouse tomatoes will hold up the best.

And for the Peppers – The best hot peppers for salsa include Serrano peppers, Tabasco peppers and cayenne peppers. Serrano peppers are biting hot and do not need to be peeled or steamed before using, making them easy to add to salsas. Peppers reach 10 centimeters long, and turn orange, red or brown from a bright green when mature.
