Roasted Vegetable Salsa packs in the veggies and flavor for a delicious, allergy free, vegan condiment
Salsa is one of my favorite condiments. Actually, it is my all-time favorite condiment. I always always have salsa in my fridge and usually have a backup in the pantry when the current jar runs out.
The best part about salsa for me is that it adds extra veggies to your day. I'm always trying to find ways to eat more veggies, and salsa is the perfect way to add more veggies to your diet.
In honor of Cinco de Mayo next Thursday, I decided to create my own homemade salsa.
I've made multiple versions of salsa and felt like it was time to make a new version. Plus, I'm in refrigerator clean-out mode since I'm moving out on Saturday (ah!) and salsa is a great way to use up any produce in your kitchen.
Since roasted veggies are God's gift to taste buds, I thought that a roasted vegetable salsa would be a delicious addition to my salsa collection.
The roasted veggies give the salsa a whole new dimension of flavors not present in a fresh tomato or canned tomato salsa. The addition of peppers to the mix really takes this to the next level.
Like I said before, I love that salsa packs in the veggies. There are 5 cups of veggies in this batch of salsa (which makes about 1 and 1/4 cup salsa). That means that just 1/4 cup of this Roasted Vegetable Salsa gives you a full serving of veggies.
Whoever said it was too hard to get enough veggies in your day didn't have this salsa and that is oh so sad.
Let's change that fact, and make more salsa, people!
