5 Minute Homemade Salsa

5 Minute Homemade Salsa

But 5 minutes for fresh, delicious, homemade salsa, now that’s possible! And let’s be honest, when it comes to salsa, half of the time I spend almost 5 minutes just trying to get the lid off the jar!

Don’t laugh, I’m a small girl and those lids are tight 😉
