Full Answer

Homemade salsa stays fresh for five to seven days when refrigerated. If the salsa changes to a maroon color instead of its normal bright red shade, it should be discarded immediately. Salsa should also be thrown out if it begins to thicken and develop a foul odor, or if the sauce develops mold. To ensure the salsa stays fresh while stored, the sauce should go in an airtight container.
