Salsa Fresca


  • Makes0 servings

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.
