Cilantro Lime Salsa

Originating in Mexico, salsa simply means “sauce” and in Mexican terms fiery and tomatoey with plenty of fresh chilies, onion, cilantro, garlic and salt. Always a blend of chopped, diced or grated fruit and vegetables, along with fresh herbs and spices.

Cilantro-Lime Salsa


  • Chop tomatoes, onion, garlic and jalapeño.
  • Drain tomato juice if you like chunkier salsa, leave it if you like it runnier.
  • Throw all ingredients into a food processor or blender.
  • Enjoy!
