{Recipe} Homemade tomato salsa

Emma September 9, 2021 No Comments

Mexican could be on my menu every week of the year and I’d have no issue with it, as long as this salsa was joining the party!

For too long I thought I enjoyed store-bought salsa, until I tasted the real deal overseas. In a quest to make it at home, I landed here. A stunning salsa that takes tacos to the next level and is perfectly paired with original tortilla chips as a starter.


1 tin diced tomatoes
1/4 cup minced fresh coriander
1 sml red onion, finely diced
1 clove garlic, minced or chopped finely
1 tbsp pickled jalepeno, finely chopped (add more if you like more heat)
the juice of 1/2 lime
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp sugar
1/4-1/2 tsp cumin, to taste


  1. Put all ingredients together into bowl and stir to combine. If you prefer a thinner consistency, put it all into a food processor and pulse until you get a desired consistency.
  2. Taste test and adjust seasonings if required.
  3. Serve and enjoy!


  • You can use finely diced fresh tomatoes if you prefer when they are in season but I actually find the tinned variety add a good amount of “sauciness”
  • For this recipe I love the tubes of minced herbs available in the fruit & veg section of the supermarket.
