George Mallet said it best, this homemade salsa is “the best salsa ever in the free world!” While that might be tricky to prove, it’s the local, fresh ingredients that make this salsa stand out from the rest. Susannah Slabaugh, Co-owner of Poole Mill Produce, joined us today to make the salsa.
Slabaugh said the secrets to the salsa’s flavor are using fresh, ripe tomatoes and adding cilantro for taste. The full list of ingredients include red and orange tomatoes, onions, cilantro, spices, and whatever else is in season, like green peppers or sweet corn. The tomatoes on Slabaugh’s farm are grown in a greenhouse without pesticides.
