Oven Roasted Salsa
Hello & Happy Tuesday!!
If there is one recipe I can never get enough of, it’s homemade salsa. While still getting my feet wet in the world of cooking, this was one of the first recipes I explored. If you have an affinity for salsa like I do, you always have some on hand.. While buying a ready made option can be more practical if you’re crammed for time making it from scratch is as easy as 1, 2, 3 and packs so much ore flavor!!
So why make your own?
In addition to the flavor being more memorable it’s actually more cost effective in that you get more for your money, you can modify the flavor to cater to your preferences and you also don’t have to worry about any preservatives in your food. Believe it or not, even fresh made salsa has preservatives to extend the shelf life.
I simply love everything about this recipe! It’s quick, easy, affordable, packs tons of veggies, tons of flavor, you can add spices if you like, it’s perf for any season, perf for entertaining, can easily be made in bulk, and pairs well with countless dishes!
If you’re searching for the perf snack that will please anyone and everyone, vegan or not, you need this classic recipe for Oven Roasted Salsa!
