Fresh Tomato Salsa

Making salsa from fresh ingredients is always the best option, the flavors really come out and best of all it is much easier than most people think.

Many people use salt, pepper and/or cilantro however no one has ever noticed any of those ingredients are missing when I serve this so all are optional and can be added as desired.

Makes: 3 cups


  • 1/2 large red onion, finely diced
  • 1 green jalapeño chili pepper, cut off the stem, take out the seeds as well as the whitish rib sections and finely dice
  • 1 green Indian chili, cut off head, remove seeds and finely dice
  • Juice of one small lime, if you do not have a juicer simply cut lime in half – cut lines into the inside of the lime, squeeze as much juice out of the halves as you can and then rotate a teaspoon inside the limes which will draw the remaining juice out. This will also give your arms a little work out!
  • 4 medium sized fresh tomatoes, diced finely and roughly


  • In the order written above combine all ingredients together in a large bowl. It is best to place ingredients into the bowl as you prepare them that way you use less additional bowls/plates therefore making less mess to clear up at the end!
  • Gently mix all ingredients together and let stand for 30 minutes to an hour so flavors can combine fully.

Serve with anything you desire – chips, quesadillas, burritos, tacos, burgers, rice… you get the idea!
