Spicy Balsamic Vinegar Salsa

Spicy Balsamic Vinegar Salsa - Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo-Friendly and No Refined Sugars | The Healthy Family and Home

I didn’t think I could ever love homemade salsa as much as I love my classic homemade version or my Raw Tomatillo Salsa, but my new Spicy Balsamic Vinegar Salsa is a pretty good contender.

It’s one of the best ways to use fresh tomatoes from your garden or from the Farmer’s Market.

The special ingredients that give this salsa an extra kick is the addition of balsamic vinegar and chili powder.

The brand of balsamic vinegar I use (365 Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena) is vegan and Non-GMO Project Verified.   If you don’t have access to a Whole Foods, here’s another brand that is not only certified organic, but is made with organic grapes and uses no sulfites.

I didn’t realize this until recently, but regular white vinegar is commonly made from wine derived from corn, so it’s really important that any vinegar products you use are organic or Non-GMO Project Verified.

This fun summertime salsa is really easy to make with a food processor and you will probably have all the ingredients already on hand.

Tip #1:  Feel free to adjust the seasonings (chili powder, Himalayan pink salt, cilantro, onions, garlic, etc) to your preference.

Tip #2:  I like to use roma tomatoes to make mine, but you can use any type of tomatoes.  The type of tomato you use can change the color of the salsa too.  When I use roma tomatoes, it seems to have a darker color than when I use tomatoes from the Farmer’s Market.

Tip #3:  This recipe will make approximately 1 – 2 servings.
