I just got a bunch of roma tomatoes on sale for .33/lb so I couldn’t resist making some fresh salsa!

Since onions, cilantro, and limes are relatively inexpensive, I made a whole jar for around .92 cents!


6 roma tomatoes
1/4 bunch of cilantro
1/4 of a small onion
1 small lime
1 small jalapeño pepper *(optional)
salt and pepper to taste


1. Chop up all tomatoes. (If you have a food processor, put them in and pulse the processor until they are chopped.) Transfer tomatoes to a bowl.
2. Finely chop onion, cilantro, and *jalapeño.
(For food processor, pulse the onion, cilantro, and jalapeño together. If they get too stuck to the side of the jar, add a little bit of lime juice so they chop better). Add this mixture to the bowl with the tomatoes.
*For less heat, de-seed the jalapeño before chopping it and putting it into the salsa. The less seeds you use, the less spicy your salsa will be*
3. Squeeze half of all of the lime into the mixture and stir.
(depending on how much you lime flavor you like).
4. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    This simple salsa is really good if you add a fresh Mango to it. Mango’s have been on sale recently!

    LOVE fresh salsa! If you don’t have jalapenos on hand, you can add a can of mexican stewed tomatoes, and it gives it a little spice.
