Best Vegan Salsa Brands

But first, let’s answer this question: Is salsa vegan?

The answer is almost always yes! 99% of the store-bought salsas you’ll find are always vegan. They’re usually just tomatoes, onions, peppers, and some spices.

Since salsa is pretty much all whole foods, it’s actually one of the healthiest vegan condiments you can find, so be sure to add it to your shopping list.

Let’s get to the salsas…

Don’t have time to read? Here’s a quick summary of the products we recommend.

Muir Glen Organic Salsa

Muir Glen Organic Salsa Garlic Cilantro, 16 oz

Check Price on Amazon >>

Muir Glen is another one that comes in a variety of flavors – most, if not all, are completely vegan.

Mild and Medium are the two that they have available. Like Simple Truth, it’s completely organic. And includes an array of peppers giving it a great flavor profile. You can find this one on Amazon and other online retailers, but unfortunately, I haven’t seen it in stores, but it’s probably just not in my area.

The ingredients are as follows:
Diced tomatoes*, tomato puree* (water, tomato paste*), onion*, diced green bell pepper*, diced Anaheim pepper*, garlic*, cilantro*, jalapeno peppers*, vinegar*, jalapeno pepper puree*, sea salt, naturally derived citric acid, naturally derived calcium chloride. *Organic

Walnut Acres Midnight Sun Salsa

This salsa is one of the best I’ve ever tasted.

The flavor profile is amazing. Though it contains some of the same ingredients as most salsa, we all know that an extra pinch of this can completely change the taste.

The company has three different flavors, including a Peach kind of flavor like sweet heat. The price is pretty affordable as well for the quality and the amount that you get.

The ingredients are as follows:
Organic tomatoes, water, organic onions, organic tomato paste, organic green bell peppers, organic black beans, organic corn, organic jalapeno peppers, organic apple cider vinegar, sea salt, organic dried onion, organic cilantro, organic spices, organic dried garlic, citric acid.

Renfro’s Salsa

Okay, the salsa pictured here is the mild flavor, but Mrs. Renfro’s is best known for its heat.

They’ve got some of the hottest salsa on the market.

This brand has a variety of flavors, most of them just a different level of spicy, but they do have some sweet heat and fan favorites like black bean and corn. You can buy from their site, and judging by a few forums, it is also available in stores. If you like spicy and want to tear up and make your nose run, this is the brand for you.

The ingredients are as follows:
Tomatoes, Water, Onions, Green Chile Peppers, Sweet Green Peppers, Distilled Vinegar, Corn Starch, Salt, Jalapeno Peppers, Garlic, Spices, Cilantro

Trader Joe’s Chunky Salsa

Trader Joe's - CHUNKY SALSA 16 OZ (1LB) Fat Free

Check Price on Amazon >>

I love me some Trader Joe’s, and this salsa is just another item on the list of things to love. It’s good, homemade, and inexpensive for the quality.

The flavor profile is amazing, and I think that has something to do with the spices they use in the salsa.

You can get this online, but I would suggest getting it fresh from your local TJ’s.

The ingredients are as follows:
Tomatoes, Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), Green Bell Peppers, Onions, Jalapeno Peppers, Distilled Vinegar, Salt, Garlic, Coriander, Paprika, Oregano.

Pace Salsa Verde

Pace Salsa, Salsa Verde, Great for Cooking and Perfect for Taco Night, 16 Ounce Jar (Pack of 6)

Pace is another big brand like Old El Paso that is sold pretty much everywhere.

Salsa Verde is definitely my favorite.

This one seems to be a fan favorite.

You can buy it in the case, so it must be good.

The formula is simple like Amy’s, and it comes in just as many flavors as Mrs. Renfro’s. You can buy it online, but not sure if it’s in stores. I haven’t seen it at the local Big Boxes near me.

The ingredients are as follows:
Ripe Tomatoes, Onions, Tomatillos, Apple Cider Vinegar, Cilantro, Fresh Pasilla Peppers, Fresh Jalapeno peppers, Parsley, Garlic, Sea Salt, Cumin

Old El Paso Thick’ n Chunky Salsa

Old El Paso actually caters quite a bit to vegans.

Whether it’s by accident or on purpose doesn’t really matter, but in the way of tex-mex, they always have plenty of options.

This salsa is easily accessible it’s practically sold everywhere. And since it’s such a huge brand, the price point is very inexpensive.

It’s not the best or the most “authentic” and original, but it certainly gets the job done, especially if you’re just craving salsa and have to have it.

This one you can find at your local big box retailer or online.

I haven’t tried it before, but I might have to give it a chance, judging by the rave reviews.

It is described as flavorful but not so overwhelming that intolerable. It has a nice balance between being savory and sweet.

Its affordable and good quality.

The ingredients are as follows:
Organic Tomatoes, Water, Organic Jalapeno Peppers, Organic Tomato Paste, Organic Onions, Salt, Organic Distilled Vinegar, Organic Sugar, Organic Dehydrated Onions, Organic Dehydrated Garlic, Organic Cayenne Pepper.

Simple Truth Mild Salsa

First up is Simple Truth Organic Salsa.

It comes in a few flavors: Mild, Medium, Tomatillo(Verde), and Black Bean and Corn.

All of the ingredients are organic, and it’s a great price. This salsa is also free of GMO’s and Artificial flavors and preservatives. I’ve never seen this in stores, but it’s readily available online.

Not that these attributes are important for veganism, but they do matter to some.

The ingredients are as follows:
Organic tomatoes, organic tomato puree, organic onions, organic green bell peppers, salt, organic jalapeno peppers, organic white vinegar, organic garlic, organic cilantro, organic cumin, organic black pepper, organic chipotle pepper powder.
