I was really in the mood for some of my fresh tomato salsa when I was at the store I picked up all the ingredients I would need to make it. My husband was so excited when I brought home tomatoes still on the vines that he ate them all up on me before I could make my salsa.
I still wanted some good chips and salsa but the only tomatoes I had left were canned tomatoes, so I decided to make a restaurant style salsa instead. This salsa is so good I didn’t even miss the fresh tomato salsa.
My grocery store did not have any fresh cilantro in stock but they had this great product called cilantro paste. I was able to just squeeze it into the blender. If you are able to find this product just replace the fresh cilantro with 2 tablespoons of the cilantro paste.
