Pinot Sauce-ah (get it...)

Mar 14, 2012

Do you make your own salsa?  If you do, it's probably a heck of a lot better than most of what you can buy at the store.  Sure, it's a bit of work, but the payoff tends to be worth the extra effort.

Here is a recipe for a simple salsa using the Pinot Habanero sauce. The Habanero pepper has a natural fruitiness that really lends itself to salsa and use with other tomato/acid heavy dishes.

If you like this recipe or did your own "spin" of it, please let us know in the comments section or via Twitter or Facebook!



Preparation time: 45 minutes


  • 2 small onions, chopped
  • 4 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 t salt
  • 2 T chopped cilantro
  • 4 T The Czar’s Pinot Habanero Sauce


Add the onions, tomatoes and salt to a small bowl. Stir together and let sit for 1/2 hour. The salt will “sweat” the mixture.

Add the Pinot Habanero Sauce and the cilantro and serve.

Makes scant 4 cups

Salsa will keep for a week in the refrigerator.
