Salsa

Fermented Heirloom Tomato Salsa

Last month I convinced my parents to come down to visit me. I know they are busy with all of their garden things and grandchildren things and their projects, but I needed their help. They also brought me a big box of lovely veggies from their garden and Dad brought me a container of his fermented […]

While you’re grilling up your meat, pop some tomatoes, garlic, onion and peppers on the fire as well and make yourself a spicy smoky good salsa, perfect for dipping or for spooning over your eggs in the morning.

Cilantro Almond Salsa

Cilantro Almond Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #creamy #hot #salsa #recipe

When you add nuts to a salsa (and blend them up really well), the salsa takes on a wonderful, creamy texture that is incredibly intoxicating. This is my second nut salsa and I’m soooo infatuated with it. I love it with chips, I love it on eggs, it’s marvelous in breakfast burritos and I’m sure in just about any Mexican […]

Hurts so Good 3-Pepper Heirloom Tomato Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #hot #salsa #recipe

Mixing three hot peppers along with low-acid heirloom tomatoes makes for a hot, spicy salsa that lingers on your tongue, clears out your sinuses and yes, hurts just a little (in a good sort of way). You can adjust up or down the amount of peppers that you use to control the heat to your […]


Mango Salsa

Mango Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #fruit #salsa #recipe

Fruit salsas are sort of a new discovery for me. Just within the past few years, I’ve discovered watermelon salsa and pineapple salsa, and reveled in the marvelous mix of sweet, hot, and savory, all together in one marvelous bite. Mangoes are probably the best suited of all fruits to grace a salsa, they already […]

Copycat Chili's Salsa ~ Insanely EASY salsa recipe that tastes like Chili's salsa from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

Adapted from CopyKat Recipes. I fell in love with Chili’s Salsa by way of a school fundraiser. One of my friends at work was selling these discount cards to raise money for her son’s team. I bought one, expecting I would never use it. But on that card there is a free chips n salsa […]


Purple Tomatillo Salsa Fresca

Purple Tomatillo Salsa Fresca ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salsa #recipe

My yoga friend grew these pretty purple tomatillos in her garden and I was the lucky recipient of several of the beauties. The very first thing I did was blend some up into salsa. I love salsas like this: they are quick, fresh, and delightful. No roasting and just a bit of chopping: enough to […]


Apple Grilled Walleye with Smoky Pineapple Salsa

Apple Grilled Walleye with Smoky Pineapple Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fish #recipe

Grilling walleye and other tender fish can be tricky because they are so delicate. They tend to fall apart easily, so you can’t really set them directly on the grill, and there’s a danger of the fish drying out. This fish is grilled on a bed of apple “planks”, which protects the tender fish from […]


Fire-Roasted Salsa Sisters

Fire Roasted Salsa Sisters

I’ve had some really good salsas lately that were fire roasted, so I decided to try making some. The key to making a fire roasted salsa is to roast the vegetables on the grill. The “fire” from the grill gives the salsa a delectable smoky flavor. (Okay, it’s really smoke from the coals that adds the smoky […]


Funky Bejeweled Kiwi, Mango & Kumquat Salsa

Pomegranate, Kiwi, Kumquat, & Mango Salsa

I love salsa. The heat of it. The variety. The fun ways you can use it. You can put so many things in a salsa.  I had some tomatoes that were begging me to make them into salsa, but I wanted to do something a little different this time … I’ve heard of mango salsa, […]


Yellow Watermelon Salsa – Two Ways

I suppose it might seem a little odd to be posting a watermelon salsa on December 1st, but believe it or not, I still have some watermelon to use up from my dad’s garden. He had such a huge crop of yellow watermelon this year that they actually donated a trailerfull of them to the […]


Janet’s Citrus Salsa

Janet's Citrus Salsa

Janet is here for Thanksgiving this year and she wanted to make citrus salsa. She even brought a can of mandarin oranges just for the occasion. So Janet and I made citrus salsa with some of Mom’s tomatoes and Dad’s jalapenos. The japs are super hot this year! If you want to tone down the […]


Spicy Corn & Black Bean Salsa

I have a lot of fresh corn still and have already frozen plenty for the year. I really love hot, spicy salsas and I thought it would be fun to try a corn salsa. I just tinkered with it till I came up with a flavor combination that worked. This works. The jalapenos give it […]


Parmesan Almond Crusted Fish with Peach Cilantro Salsa

Parmesan-Almond Crusted Fish with Peach-Cilantro Salsa

We were up at the lake this past weekend visiting my parents and being at the lake in the summertime always makes me think of fish. The kids all went out fishing right away, but had no luck catching any. But that really didn’t matter … mom and dad always have plenty of fish in […]


Super Simple Salsa Fresca

This recipe is one of my dad’s inventions. It’s so simple, yet so good. It is my go-to salsa. I always, always have some of this on hand. Unlike some of my other recipes, this one makes a good hearty amount, enough to keep a pint jar for yourself, and give the other away. Or […]
