Restaurant Style Blender Salsa. This salsa couldn’t be easier or quicker to make, and will rival even the best of restaurant salsas.
This last weekend we invited some friends over to grill. We imagined a nice, sunny evening of children running around our back yard, and the adults sitting around eating warm, grilled food and sipping cold drinks. Then it rained. I think that if our area ever has a drought, my husband and I will plan a cookout. It’s seems to be a surefire way to ensure it will rain. Last April we planned a cookout and invited about 50 adults and children over. They ALL came. It POURED. I was determined that we would still get some time outside, so I rented a bounce house for the kids and told everyone to bring rain boots and swim suits. It was great, but our floors literally haven’t recovered.
Back to this weekend though. It rained. It was fine though – before the rain started, we had a little bit of time to sit outside. The six adults sat around the table with this salsa and a bag of chips in the middle. Between the adults and the four children, this HUGE bowl of salsa was almost gone in about 30 minutes. That’s how good this stuff is. It’s addictive.
This salsa is better than jarred salsa, as good, if not better than restaurant salsa, and although I haven’t actually calculated it, I’m sure it’s cheaper than both of those. So next time you’re sitting outside hoping it doesn’t rain, or making tacos, or going to a party where you need to take a dish, this restaurant style blender salsa needs to be on your short list. Even our 3 year old loves it. See this picture below where there are some tiny hands holding a chip? This was not staged. I was taking photos and my son couldn’t take the waiting any longer. Everyone loves this stuff.
To make this recipe, we used our Ninja Kitchen System(Amazon affiliate link), I adore this thing. It’s a blender and food processor, and does both beautifully.
This salsa is as good if not better that restaurant salsa and couldn't be easier or quicker to make. You'll never buy jarred salsa again.
