This Vitamix Salsa Recipe comes together in minutes and is so delicious! And it recipe uses both canned and fresh tomatoes for a flavorful result.
Dips are the ultimate game day and entertaining food. Whether its my Vegan Rotel Dip, a 4 Ingredient Guacamole, or a Vegan Garlic And Herb White Bean Dip, they are easy to make and are always crowd-pleaser.
But we cant forget a traditional salsa. Its great to serve to a crowd as a game day appetizer, or to add to burrito bowls throughout the week. Its easy to make right in a blender and only requires 7 ingredients!
Plus making salsa in a blender takes most of the chopping out of the equation. And you can pulse the blender more or fewer times depending on how chunky you like it.
Roma Tomatoes: I only recommend Roma tomatoes for this recipe. They are the least juicy of all tomato varieties. If you use another variety you salsa may be runny.
Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes: These add depth of flavor. I like the Muir Glen brand.
Jalapeno: Use as much or as little jalapeño as you like. I went with half of one, but if you like it spicy, use a whole one. Or even more!
Lime Juice: For acidity.
This Vitamix Salsa recipe is SO easy to make.
First, add the onion, garlic and jalapeño into the bottom of the blender.
Then, add the fresh seeded Roma tomatoes followed by the drained fire-roasted tomatoes.
Next, add the cilantro, salt and lime juice.
Now, be sure your Vitamix blender is set on the lowest speed setting, and press the pulse button about 20-25 times or until the salsa is the texture you like.
You may need to use the tamper to help it get going.
Once the salsa is your preferred texture, pour it into a bowl and serve!
How to Seed Tomatoes
First, quarter the tomatoes.
Then, hold a tomato quarter in one hand over a bowl.
Next, run your thumb along the seed pockets, discarding the gooey jelly and seeds.
And thats it!
I made this salsa recipe in a Vitamix blender. They are expensive, but they are also the best.
But, you can make this recipe in any type of blender.
Or even a food processor!

Top Recipe Tips
It is important to remove the seeds for the texture of the salsa. The salsa will be quite runny if you don't remove the seeds.
Add things to the blender in the order the recipe states. The items at the bottom will get chopped more than the items at the top.
Be sure to use the pulse button! If you fully blend the salsa, it will turn into liquid.
To store the Vitamix Salsa, place into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
I do not recommend freezing this recipe.
