Salsa is a naturally healthy food as it contains mostly fresh vegetables and herbs. When you purchase store bought versions they usually have added sodium and sugars, as well as preservatives. It’s not difficult to make your own version at home, and then adjust spiciness level as you see fit.
If making salsa for the first time, its easiest to start with a basic salsa recipe. There are countless variations that can be made, but simple is always a good place to start.
