Fresh and Easy Mango Salsa from Salads for Lunch // This fresh mango salsa is perfect for entertaining – the juices from the ripe mango, tomatoes and lime just mingle together, make friends and create a burst of flavours in your mouth. Serve with salmon as a main course or with tortilla chips as an appetizer.
Spicy Mango and Lime Chunky Salsa from The Healthy Family and Home // You can have this ready to enjoy in about 5 minutes, or as long as it takes to dice the veggies and mix up the dressing. This healthy recipe is made with clean, real food ingredients and is organic, raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and paleo-friendly.
Piquillo Pepper Avocado Toast from Unconditionally Nourished // Piquillo Pepper Olive Salsa & Smashed Avocado on Toast is an exciting way to change up a classic. If you love avocado on toast, but looking for a new and inventive way to change up one of your favorites then don’t worry because this recipe has you covered.
Easy Blender Tomatillo Salsa Verde from Shugary Sweets // Try this Tomatillo Salsa recipe for an authentic, tangy Mexican salsa verde. Perfect for pairing with tacos, enchiladas or a big bowl of chips!
Apple Cider Salsa from My Bizzy Kitchen // I thought, why not add apples to salsa? And to make it even easier, I decided to use canned tomatoes to make this salsa – game changer because this literally came together in about two minutes. Tops.
Easy Pineapple and Ginger Salsa from My Capital Plate // One of my favourite side dishes would have to be this easy pineapple and ginger salsa. I often serve it alongside grilled pork, but it would easily work with chicken or fish too.
6 Ingredient Fresh Peach Salsa from Running in a Skirt / / Tree ripened sweet peaches shine in my fresh peach salsa recipe! My trick for making this easily is to use my small food chopper. I still don’t have a big food processor (although I’d really like one!) but this small one is cheap, easy to clean and super handy. I put everything for the salsa in it except for the peaches. It creates a perfect finely chopped up consistency for the salsa. Just don’t over chop! It also saves lots and lots of chopping time.
5-Minute Salmon with Lemon-Artichoke Salsa from Iowa Girl Eats // 5-Minute Salmon with Lemon-Artichoke Salsa pairs salmon filets with a fresh and zippy salsa made with artichoke hearts, capers, dill, and plenty of lemon juice. A beautiful and healthy, gluten-free, low-carb dinner recipe!
Shortcut Black Bean and Corn Salsa from Sinful Nutrion // This quick and easy Black Bean and Corn Salsa recipe takes just 6 ingredients to make, with no chopping or cutting required!
Avocado Salsa from Kahakai Kitchen // I grabbed poke from the grocery store and frozen mango (none of the fresh ones were ripe). All I needed to do was chop the ingredients for the salsa, open a bag of cabbage mix and toast some tortillas on my gas stove, and dinner was served.
6 Ingredient Pomegranate Cucumber Salsa from Running in a Skirt // The sweet, rich and tangy flavor is perfect with the cool crisp cucumber, warm jalapeno, and fragrant cilantro. Serve my Pomegranate Cucumber Salsa recipe with salty chips for the perfect winter appetizer or snack. The salty and sweet combo is sheer perfection.
The Salsa Queen’s Quick and Easy Salsa from More Than Just Dessert // I thought I’d cross something off my foodie-bucket list and have us make homemade salsa. Salsa is an easy recipe that can be altered to fit the taste buds of the chef. For us, we kept it simple but added some spice by adding more jalapenos and peppers, (where as if i were making it solely for myself, they would be more sporadically used…so it’s easy to alter without screwing up).
Avocado Feta Salsa from A Healthy Slice of Life // This salsa is one that you can go to any time you need something easy, and it will be a crowd-pleaser. It would be perfect on a hot summer day, as a cooling appetizer or side dish for your grilled goodies. Or, if you’re embracing more plant-based meals and snacks like we are, this one is comforting and filling and when served with some crispy pita or tortilla chips, or even as a relish to go on top of tofu or tempeh.
Colorful Chickpea Salsa from Leafy Not Beefy // The veggies were cut up ahead of time, so it took no time at all to whip this together, and I just think all the flavors and textures work really well.
Fast & Refreshing Pineapple Salsa from The Domestic Dietitian // Light and refreshing, this pineapple salsa features just 4 ingredients and makes a great dip or topping for chicken or fish recipes.
Not Your Grandma’s Salsa from Her Happy Balance // I served the salsa on top of chicken that I had baked in the oven with some olive oil and took it to work for lunch on Monday and today. This recipe makes a lot so I had enough to stash in a small bowl in the fridge for a snack. You could also mix the salsa into omelets or just serve it up with some tortilla chips.
Peach Salsa from Primally Inspired // Even if you don’t have this handy dandy little gadget, this peach salsa is so simple to whip together with a basic food chopper. It’s so fresh and flavorful with bites of sweet, juicy peaches and garden fresh veggies. Yum, salsa doesn’t get better than this!
Swing Dancing Strawberry Salsa from Fit for Broadway // Easy as this: Carefully mix all ingredients in a bowl. Enjoy with veggies or natural chips of choice.
Easy Homemade Salsa from Pencils and Pancakes // First things first- create homemade versions of foods that regularly have sugar. Cue the homemade salsa recipe!
Corn and Black Bean Salsa from One Girls Taste on Life // This is the easiest recipe I have ever put on my blog, but it’s also one of the most delicious! I don’t know why the Italian dressing works so well here, but it does. In my opinion, you could use just half a bottle of Italian dressing and be OK, but the original recipe calls for a full bottle, so that’s what I wrote.
