This is some seriously good eats so don’t let the name fool ya’! Once you make this salsa you won’t want to buy salsa ever again!
This salsa involves a two-step process. First, fermenting chopped onions in kombucha vinegar. This is where all the lovely probiotics start to have a party getting ready to keep your digestive system happy and healthy. (If you don’t have kombucha vinegar you can substitute 1/4 cup good quality apple cider vinegar and 1/4 cup filtered water for the 1/2 cup of kombucha vinegar. You will get a tasty salsa this way, but it won’t be fermented.) The second step is to combine the fermented onions with the remaining ingredients.
Active work time: 10 minutes
Fermenting time: 12-48 hours
18oz jar Diced Tomatoes
½ cup Kombucha Fermented Onions
1-2 Whole Pickled Jalapenos
3-4 Cloves Garlic
1 Large Handful Cilantro
1-2 tsp Sea Salt
Kombucha Fermented Onions
1 Onion, chopped
½ cup Kombucha Vinegar
½ cup Filtered Water
Place onions in a jar and pour in kombucha vinegar and water. Cover jar tightly with a lid and allow to sit at room temperature for 24-48 hours, place in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
Combine tomatoes, ½ cup fermented onions along with the kombucha liquid, jalapenos, garlic, cilantro and salt in a food processor or blender. Process until desired consistency.
Note: If you have time you can allow the salsa to continue to ferment by leaving the salsa at room temperature for an additional 12-24 hours before storing in the refrigerator. (I often make this salsa in the morning so that it can sit at room temperature before I serve it at dinner.)
