Canada Day Salsa

Canada Day is coming up fast and the preparations for our party are well underway. We're trying to stick to a red and white theme, but also adding in our traditional Canada Day picnic food. I'm very excited to share this recipe for Canada Day Salsa.

Makes 8 cups.
2 Large  tomatoes, chopped
2, 398mL cans of Fire Roasted diced tomatoes
2 JalapeƱos seeded and chopped
2 TBSP Fresh lime juice 
4 Garlic cloves, minced
1 Large white or brown onion, chopped
11/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
1/3 cup Fresh cilantro, chopped 
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and let chill in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving. 

We like our salsa very fine (not chunky) and so we always put ours in the blender. This way it comes out nice and smooth and is easy to scoop with our chips. 

Have fun with this salsa and serve with white and red corn chips. 

Happy Cooking,

PS: Here's where we link up.

  1. This looks like a fantastic salsa... but it reminds me more of Mexico than Canada. I would love it if you would share your recipe on my foodie friday party today.
