Yes, I know you can buy salsa in a jar. But this is so good and so easy – totally worth doing for such a special occasion. Make sure you use flavourful ripe tomatoes, and use rubber gloves when chopping the jalapeno peppers – they can be pretty hot.


  • 4 medium fully ripe tomatoes , chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper , seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 red onion , chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro , chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Let sit for at least 15 minutes before serving, to allow the flavours to blend and the tomato to give up some of its juice.
