How to store fresh homemade salsa?

Keep your home made salsa in a glass jar with an airtight lid in the fridge to prevent flavors from seeping in and maintain the freshness of the vegetables.

What tomatoes are best for salsa?

Always use firm, deep red colored, and fleshy tomatoes to make fresh tomato salsa at home. Roma tomatoes, Little Mama tomatoes, or Hothouse tomatoes are perfect, but you can honestly use any type of tomato. If you don’t have fresh tomatoes, go for canned tomatoes or a combination of canned and fresh ones.

How long will homemade salsa last?

Your fresh tomato salsa made at home uses all the natural ingredients. Thus, it lasts only about 5-7 days when stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Health Benefits of Tomato:

  • It is rich in antioxidants called Lycopene, which supports your immune system by fighting free radicals.
  • This contains vitamin B, E, and potassium, which boosts your heart health by lowering cholesterol levels and blood pressure.
  • Tomatoes are high in fiber that improves digestion and aids in diabetes management.
