Fresh Roasted Salsa (better than Nourishing Traditions page 103)

The salsa recipe in Nourishing Traditions is good but way too salty if you want to eat it now. Get an adapted version, with less salt and tons of flavor!




  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Halve peppers lengthwise, and remove the seeds for a mild salsa. Leave the seeds for a hotter salsa.
  3. Place tomatoes, onions, peppers and garlic in a shallow baking dish and toss with olive oil.
  4. Roast in the oven until the vegetables are aromatic and begin to char, approximately 45 minutes.
  5. Remove vegetables from the oven an allow them to cool enough to handle.
  6. For a blended salsa, remove vegetables from the oven and place them, their juices and the remaining ingredients in a blender and process.
  7. For a thick and chunky salsa, roughly chop the vegetables and place in a medium bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine well.
  8. Taste and add more salt if desired.
  9. Store in the refrigerator if you don’t eat the whole jar during the taste test.
