How to Make Your Own Salsa

Are you tired of buying pre-made salsa that comes in plastic containers? Or maybe you're looking for a way to use up some extra tomatoes and peppers from your garden? Whatever the reason, making your own salsa is a great way to reduce waste and enjoy fresh, homemade flavor. Plus, with the help of Two Pillars eco-friendly kitchen products, the process is even easier and more sustainable.

First up, the Duo Cover®. This nifty gadget is perfect for warming up tortilla chips in the microwave without making a mess. Simply place the chips on a plate, cover with the Duo Cover, and heat for 30-60 seconds. The MoistureLock™ technology will keep the chips crispy while preventing any splatters or spills. Plus, the microwave-safe magnets make it easy to store the Duo Cover when not in use.

Now that you have your chips ready, it's time to make the salsa. Start by chopping up some fresh tomatoes, onions, and peppers. If you like a milder salsa, remove the seeds and membranes from the peppers. For a spicier version, leave them in. You can also add in some fresh cilantro, lime juice, and garlic for extra flavor.

Next, it's time to store your salsa. Instead of using plastic containers or wrap, try using a ZipBag®. These reusable silicone storage bags are perfect for keeping your salsa fresh and spill-free. Plus, they're dishwasher safe and can be used for sous vide cooking as well.

Now, let's talk about clean-up. Instead of using paper towels or cleaning cloths, try using a Swedish Dishcloth. These all-natural cloths can be rinsed and reused, reducing waste in your kitchen. Plus, they're compostable when they've reached the end of their life.

Last but not least, use the UniLid® to cover your salsa while it's in the fridge. This universal lid fits all shapes and sizes and has food tracking, so you know exactly when you made your salsa. Plus, it's an eco-friendly replacement for plastic wrap.

Making your own salsa is not only a delicious way to enjoy fresh flavors, but it's also an eco-friendly way to reduce waste in your kitchen. With the help of Two Pillars' sustainable kitchen products, you can make and store your salsa with ease, all while doing your part for the environment. So go ahead and give it a try - your taste buds (and the planet) will thank you!
