Fresh Tomato Salsa

  • Yield 12 servings

A chunky salsa, made with onions, jalapeno, and a splash of lime juice


"Being a Master Gardener in Albuquerque, N.M., I grow tomatoes in a pot, and I have enough fully grown tomatoes to make a fresh tomato salsa."


3 medium tomatoes
1 medium green bell pepper, finely chopped
6 medium green onions, finely chopped (white and green parts)
1 medium jalapeno chile, seeded and finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro, or to taste
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons lime juice, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon salt
Tortilla chips


  1. Cut tomatoes in half crosswise. Squeeze to remove excess liquid and seeds; chop.
  2. Combine tomatoes, bell pepper, green onions, jalapeno, cilantro, garlic, lime juice and salt in a medium bowl. Toss gently to blend, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow flavors to blend. Serve with warmed tortillas or tortilla chips.
