Sassy Salsa

It’s that time of year when you can find my hubs and I camped out in the kitchen putting up tons of yummy tomatoes to get us through the winter. While were cooking and canning big batches of pasta sauce, cooked salsa and stewed tomatoes to dine on later, we also whip up fresh salsa to savor with our favorite Mexican meals. We also enjoy it as a simple snack with chips or to spice up our morning eggs. Head to your Farmer’s Market or favorite grocery store for some fresh summer tomatoes (and a few other key ingredients) to make this delicious side dish for yourself.


  • 6 Roma or garden tomatoes, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 red or yellow onion, peeled and roughly chopped.
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped or crushed
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves.
  • pinch of cumin 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Simply mix your chopped veggies together, dash on the spices, and drizzle the lime juice over it all. Mix well and serve. You can also add 1/2 an avocado if you like! This keeps well in the fridge for 2-3 days if it lasts that long;) Salsa on!
