Tomato Salsa

It is so easy to make fresh tomato salsa, which you can enjoy as a dip, or serve alongside salads, steamed vegetables or other dishes.

While fresh ripe tomatoes will taste best you could use tinned tomatoes and add a teaspoon of maple syrup for sweetness.

Optional Additions: Cucumber, bell peppers, parsley, oregano, olive oil, black pepper.

I often serve this with cauliflower rice or roasted sweet potatoes.

Salsa is a good option for the lunch box. Experiment! Use whatever fresh ingredients you have, a lemon if you have no lime, mixed peppers, different spices and fresh herbs such as basil, oregano, parsley or coriander.


  • 2 cups of chopped ripe tomatoes
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and chopped
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 or 2 hot peppers, chopped (leave the seeds for more heat)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Unrefined sea salt to taste


  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and blitz to desired consistency.
  2. OR If you like a chunky salsa, chop all ingredients finely and combine in a large bowl.
