What Are Some Good Homemade Salsa Recipes?

Martha Stewart's classic roasted salsa recipe and Emeril Lagasse's salsa are both good homemade salsa recipes. Stewart's recipe, which uses roasted vegetables instead of raw, is good as a baked potato topping or a substitute for ketchup. Lagasse's salsa is easier to make and features hot sauce instead of fresh peppers.

To make Martha Stewart's classic roasted salsa recipe, broil 2 large tomatoes, 1 halved medium white onion, 3 jalapenos and 3 unpeeled garlic cloves in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet until blistered and slightly softened, about six to eight minutes. Remove the garlic skins, then pulse the garlic and vegetables in a food processor until they are coarsely pureed. Add 3 tablespoons of fresh lime juice and salt and pepper to taste and pulse to combine. Transfer to a bowl, stir in 1/4 cup of chopped fresh cilantro, and serve.

Emeril Lagasse's salsa uses all raw ingredients and hot sauce in place of jalapenos. Combine 3 ripe plum tomatoes, 1/4 cup chopped red or yellow onions, 2 tablespoons minced fresh cliantro, 1 clove of garlic and 2 teaspoons of fresh lime juice in a food processor. Add 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and red hot sauce, then pulse until the salsa is slightly chunky. Transfer to a bowl, and serve.
