Whole30 Compliant Homemade Salsa

Finding a good, compliant Whole30 salsa can be tricky. So many of them have added sugars.

I’ve started making my own, and I am blown away at how beyond easy and incredibly delicious it is! Even better than what I can buy in the store. It tastes exactly like what you get at the Mexican restaurant.

Whole30 + Keto Salsa Ingredients

The best part is it is made using canned tomatoes! So you can enjoy delicious salsa with peak ripe tomatoes all year long. I prefer using fire roasted canned tomatoes. It adds so much more depth of flavor, and gives the salsa that authentic Mexican restaurant.

The rest of the ingredients are canned diced green chiles, jalapeno, onion, cilantro, lime juice and salt. So simple! The recipe is for a mild salsa, but for more heat add in more jalapenos!

How Long Does Homemade Salsa Last?

This salsa will last for at least a week in the fridge, if not longer. Just check for spoilage.

I like to store mine in pint mason jars. It makes enough to fill 2 pint mason jars. You can also use 1 quart mason jar.
