1. Homemade Mild Salsa – There is a reason this homemade salsa is first on our list. It is the BEST recipe you will ever make – no question.

Just last week my neighbor (who gets a jar from us each time we make it) said this: “I don’t know what it is about that salsa, but it is better than any homemade or restaurant salsa I’ve ever had.” And I 100% agree.
