Asparagus is not a common ingredient for a salsa but this recipe will have you questioning why you have never used this fresh, finely chopped vegetable in your homemade salsa recipes. This is an easy homemade asparagus salsa combining the fresh asparagus and tomatoes with cilantro and lime to create a zesty zing that will be a popular appetizer for any event.
Using Asparagus In Your Homemade Salsa Recipe
This is my favorite time of year for many reasons – green grass, the birds returning, leaves on the trees and best of all – fresh, local produce! I’m so excited to be working with Barrie Hill Farms again this season and now that the asparagus is finally ready (we actually had snowflakes this past weekend!!), I’ll be visiting each week to bring you fresh, seasonal recipes.
Asparagus seems to be growing in popularity on the internet. At this time of year, there are so many creative ways to use this delicious veggie and people are flocking to farmers’ markets to get their hands on some freshly picked ones. I am feeling that same inspiration that hit me last year each time I went to the market. Being surrounded by so much fresh-from-the-field produce just makes me happy!
How gorgeous is this asparagus? It’s just calling out for being transformed into a beautiful asparagus salsa!
Asparagus Salsa Uses Simple Yet Delicious Ingredients
If you don’t have a grill, you can roast the asparagus for this recipe. There are only a few ingredients but each one packs a punch. The taste is going to surprise you because the flavors meld together in an unexpected way. SO darn delicious!
All the best parts of a great dish – fresh ingredients, strong complementary flavors with a zing of lime that you’ll find addicting. Making this asparagus salsa is easy and is unique and different from most salsas that it is bound to be a hit with anyone! Barrie Hill Farms even sells Mexican Spiced Tortilla Chips made with Asparagus and they are awesome!
