Fresh Garden Salsa 🍅

Surprisingly quick to throw together! Great way to use up your surplus garden tomatoes 😊

Even those that don’t like tomatoes alone usually like salsa! What’s not to love?! And making your own allows you to control the “chunkiness” and the heat.

I use a food processor because I like my garden salsa to be “small chunk” also, it’s waaaaay easy. I do sometimes over process it a bit and it gets a little fluid-y but still tastes good!

***TIP*** if you want your salsa to have a little more “chunk”, I found that the best way to control the wateriness is to remove the seeds and liquid from the center of the tomatoes while you’re quartering them. Also- you could reduce the lime juice to 1 tsp, if desired.

This recipe is a basic recipe that is easy to build upon depending on how many tomatoes you have.


🍅 2 c tomatoes (1lb), quartered

🍅 1/4 onion, diced

🍅 1/4 jalapeño, diced (seeds optional)

🍅 1/4 c (or less) cilantro, rough chopped

🍅 1 garlic clove, smashed

🍅 1 tsp sea salt

🍅 1/4 tsp cumin

🍅 1 pinch of sugar

🍅 2 tsp lime juice

Place all in food processor and pulse until the consistency that you like your salsa!

Remember that the seeds and the white membranes inside the jalapeños give the heat. Include those or remove those to reach your desired heat-level! I also like to wear gloves when handling jalapeños! Those oils really stay on your skin! Wear gloves…you’ll thank yourself the next time you rub your eyes 😬😊

Pour into clean mason jars. These can be stored without processing in the refrigerator for a week or two.

This recipe makes a little over 2 cups. Repeat as desired or until you run out of those garden tomatoes!

Give as a gift to your friends, family, & neighbors! There’s just something special about a gift of fresh food made in your kitchen. ♥️
