What is Salsa?
Salsa originates from Mexico with basic ingredients that include: tomatoes, peppers, cilantro, basil, and onions. Salsa can either be chilled, heated, chopped, or blended to meet most standards. Salsa straight from the garden is very fresh with awesome flavor. It's also a great snack being low in calories and fat.

Salsa DipSalsa Garden Design
Some gardeners may choose to arrange the salsa garden plants together in the garden. However, there is no reason why each vegetable must be grown in its own neat and tidy row. Set aside an area in the vegetable garden to grow salsa veggies. Get creative in the salsa garden by arranging the plants in concentric circles, with the star ingredient, the tomato, in the center of the design. Onions planted around the edge of the circle form a delicate border for the bed, while ripening pepper plants interspersed with cilantro form the middle layer.

Harvesting and Making Salsa
Regardless of the design or method used to grow a salsa garden, harvesting will no doubt become the favorite part of growing a salsa-themed garden. Once all of the ingredients have been harvested, coarsely chop up ripe tomatoes, peppers, onion, and cilantro, season with salt and pepper to taste, and, if desired, squeeze the juice from half a lime over all. Toss and serve!
