Anytime I hear the word salsa I can’t help but think of summer harvest. It’s been super exciting over the past few years of summer gardening to be able to add new vegetables from my harvest to the traditional summer salsa recipe. In this post, I share my favorite Summer Harvest Salsa!
Fresh is Best
Most people don’t realize you can grow a complete salsa party in your own home space. Corn, beans, onions, and garlic are a few products that are easy to grow. As long as the growing space has up to six hours of sun you are most likely going to succeed. During the summer months, I love using fresh sweet corn from the farmer’s markets in my Garden Fresh Salsa Recipe. This is just one of my many Salsas I enjoy serving up so be sure to scroll down on the post to see more.

A similar recipe was shared with me by a neighbor at a 4-H event. Over the years I’ve added my own fresh ingredient spin to the recipe.
In today’s recipe, I feature one of my favorite garlic mincers that are super easy to use and clean. It is hard to find a good garlic press that actually works. I have gone through many in the last 20 years. My first experience with a press during my Pampered Chef Days.
