The best thing about salsa is its versatility! You can use most any fruit or vegetable from tomatoes or strawberries to peppers and create a dip perfect for scooping with tortilla chips or for topping tacos. The best part is the one common ingredient among all my favorite salsas. You guessed it – onions! Like the one found in this Onion and Roasted Red Pepper Salsa.

I love roasted red peppers, but I rarely see them used in salsa. This is why we created our own salsa recipe loaded with sweet onions and roasted red peppers. Using peppers from the jar allows you to add sweet and smoky flavor without extra work. This recipe makes the perfect option for those who like their salsa on the mild side, but you can always boost the heat by adding a few diced fresh or pickled jalapenos.
