Homemade Salsa

Fresh Homemade Salsa is the best kind of salsa! With ripened tomatoes, fresh cilantro, onions, and lime, you can't beat the natural flavors.

  • Food Processor



  • Combine all ingredients EXCEPT for the green onion in a food processor. Pulse the food processor a few times until everything looks diced, but not completely blended.
  • Pour salsa into a medium-sized bowl and stir in the onion. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight to let flavors meld together.
  • Serve with tortilla chips or with your favorite Mexican dishes!


This is the best salsa recipe, in my opinion. Perfect for spooning on top of a burrito bowl or a taco salad. Or you could eat this fresh salsa the way nature intended...with chips and some homemade guacamole. Enjoy!
