How Can I Make Restaurant-Style Salsa?

Good Questions

Q: It's hard to find canned salsa that satisfies my taste buds these days.

Any tips on making restaurant-style salsas?

Sent by KatrinaEditor: Katrina, we're not exactly sure what you mean by "restaurant-style," so the best way to start would be to eat a restaurant salsa and try to really pay attention to the flavors in it. Does it have a lot of cilantro? Lime? Can you taste tomatillo? Does it taste like it was cooked? Figure out what you like and what you're looking for.

Then take the flavors that you're looking for and apply them in a homemade recipe. You can find a few different options here:

Making salsa is really all about trial and experimentation, adding a bit of this and that until you get the taste you want.

Readers, any suggestions for Katrina?
