Restaurant Style Salsa

In honor of Cinco de Mayo next week, I’m sharing a recipe that’s been on my to-make list for years. I’ve been bookmarking recipes for Restaurant Style Salsa for what seems like ever. After all, the best part of going to a Mexican restaurant is the chips and salsa. Well, that and the margaritas, but I can’t indulge in those quite yet. I’ve got to tell you, I’m kicking myself for waiting so long to make this myself. It was super easy and just as additive as the stuff they serve at the restaurants.

  • 1/2 a small onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed/chopped

  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
