Do You Prefer Fresh or Jarred Salsa?

We've already asked you what flavor of salsa you prefer, but how about what kind? Do you like it fresh or jarred? I prefer fresh, but I know that there are a lot of people who believe that some jarred salsas can't be beat. What do you think? What kind of salsa do you use?

Fresh. There is a local couple who makes the most amazing salsa. In fact, my order should be arriving any minute! Yay!

I only eat fresh, only with veggies grown in my own garden!! No REALLY!! The only thing I use in it that I don't actually grow myself are limes. YUMMMMMMMMMMM!!

I love all salsas, I'm not too picky. But my favourite is the salsa that my mom and dad make and can!

All salsa. Homemade is the best but I also add to much garlic and cilantro. And it takes forever to make.

Fresh homemade usually, but there's this produce store in Dixon, CA that has the best organic fruits and veggies (and the best honey sticks!), and they make their own salsa. It's the best salsa I've ever had! I wish I knew the name of the store, all I knwo is how to get there (but haven't been in years).

Also yes, Green Mountain Gringo is really excellent.

I think that different salsas play different roles. There are a few jarred brands that I LOVE LOVE LOVE. Plus, I like 'em spicy and I'm too lazy to hunt down the good chiles that are used in m favorite jarred ones. Yeah, so basically it's just that I'm lazy...

I love Newman's Own salsa. The black bean and corn one is so good and chunky!

My favorite for summer is this one that's available at my grocery store - just tomatoes, cucumber, and onion. It's delicious and refreshing!

I love fresh above all else, the only 2 jarred kinds I'll eat are Green Mountain, and Frog Ranch which was only available in my college town. A mini food processor/chopper makes making fresh salsa so easy! In the summer there's always a container of fresh salsa in our fridge, yummy!

I love fresh, but sometimes it can come out too bland... My FAVORITE jar brand is Green Mountain, it tastes sooo fresh I love it. Nice and hot, too ;)

I've found a few specialty brands of jarred that I really like, but I also love going to a resto that has fresh salsa with fresh cilantro... amazing!

I love making it myself, but honestly, I hate chopping up the roma tomatoes for the one that I make! I love store bought fresh and store bought jarred is exactly what I'm in the mood for sometimes!
