Fresh Tomato Salsa




Earlier this year I published a great tomato salsa recipe.  In fact, that recipe comes very close to being a copycat Chipotle salsa, which is one of my favorites.  Fast forward a couple of months to mid-summer.  Our garden is all-but-belching tomatoes, peppers and other amazing veg.  The other night we tried tweaking our salsa recipe to be more of a pico de gallo that mimics a local Mexican restaurant’s version that we LOVE.

I’m pleased to share the absolutely scrumptious results with you.  For this variation, we swapped out the red onions for yellow and added a small jalapeno pepper.  I am not a fan of spicy food so we removed the seeds from the pepper which cut the heat factor by a lot.  We also added a nice soft avocado to the mix and the final product was simply fantastic.

See it in action in this video:

To make a very decent sized (read: enough to share) portion of this salsa, you will need:

  • 3 Cups diced tomatoes
  • 3 Cups diced yellow onion
  • 1.5 Cups fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 diced avocado
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper (diced and de-seeded)

Salsa Ingredients

How to make:

  1. Mix ingredients.
  2. Refrigerate until you’re ready to serve.
  3. Serve with chips!
