“Don’t Leave Home Without It” Salsa

Once upon a time, we owned our own produce market and I would make fresh salsa for sale. Along with my hummus and guacamole, it was a very popular item and a batch would only last a day or two. One day, a gentleman came in especially to buy some salsa. He was going on vacation in his motor home and would not leave our shop until I had made him enough for his trip!

  • 1 can diced tomatoes, drained, or 2-3 ripe tomatoes
  • ¼ medium onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • ¼ bunch of cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, or to taste
  • Salt, sugar and hot sauce to taste


  1. Place cilantro, onion, garlic, lime juice and jalapeno pepper in food processor.  (Be sure to put the cilantro under the onion to “weigh it down” while processing.)
  2. Pulse in the food processor until minced well.
  3. Add the diced tomatoes and pulse briefly until diced.
  4. Taste and add seasonings as needed.  (I try to make all of the taste buds on my tongue “fire”)
