Homemade fermented salsa has been on my list for a long time. I’m not sure why I hesitated to try it because it’s so easy to make!
Fermentation produces probiotics which are essential for a healthy gut. Our family eats a spoonful of fermented food such as sauerkraut, kimchi or fermented vegetables at each meal, so adding salsa to the list is a fun addition.
All that’s required for this salsa recipe is tomatoes, onion, cilantro, lime juice and sea salt. The ingredients sit in a jar for two days in the pantry. After 48 hours you’ll have fermented salsa that you can use for dipping or to serve with grilled meats, eggs, vegetables, etc. I personally love putting it on top of scrambled eggs!
You really need to give this one a try!
