IS SALSA AND SALSA FRESCA THE SAME THING?

Pretty much. Salsa fresca, salsa, and pico de gallo are all basically the same fresh ingredients. Some would argue that the difference lies in the texture of the ingredients; salsa fresca being on the most pureed side and pico de gallo being on the more chunky side. What do you call your fresh salsa? Let me know in the comments below!

HOW TO SERVE FRESH SALSA

This salsa fresca is super versatile. Try it served traditionally with tacos, tortilla chips, or as a bruschetta topping. You could also think outside the box and serve it with eggs, steak, or even on a baked potato!

HOW LONG DOES FRESH SALSA LAST?

Store fresh salsa covered in the refrigerator for up to five days. You can freeze fresh salsa, but the texture will be mushy once thawed.
