Fresh Tomato Salsa

  • Makes about 4 cups
  • Preparation Time:


  • 3 large ripe tomatoes, diced small
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and diced small
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 to 2 jalapeño peppers, minced (for less heat, remove the seeds)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Sea salt to taste

Here’s another must-have recipe for using ripe garden-fresh vegetables. I am not a fan of salsa made with out-of-season tomatoes, so in the off season, I use my favorite store-bought salsa instead.


Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Store refrigerated until ready to serve.

Happy snacking!
