Fresh Garden Salsa


This summer, my mom’s garden is overflowing with tomatoes. I decided to whip up a fresh salsa to munch on and here I am to share it with you!


In my family, spicy is the only option. My boyfriend, on the other hand, won’t go near any kind of pepper. So luckily this salsa didn’t have as much of a kick as I would have preferred, but now Fran might try it and actually eat VEGGIES! I recommend getting fresh tomatoes either from your backyard or the farm stand, but it will taste good just the same with store-bought tomatoes! Another tip, don’t leave out the ground cumin. We were out of it so I made a trip to the grocery store just for the cumin because from what I saw on the internet, it’s what makes the salsa. With a little inspo from, I used my own measurements and ended up with a good amount of salsa.

Servings – 10 to 15
Prep time – 10 minutes


  • 3 large fresh tomatoes
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt



  1. Chop all the vegetables into large chunks and put in a large bowl;
  2. Mix the ingredients in the large bowl.
  3. Use a food processor to chop the veggies up. I did this four times since my food processor is small. Don’t over-do it with the food processor: we’re not making sauce! Brief pulses for about 5 seconds should do the trick;
  4. Serve and enjoy!


Like I said, this salsa isn’t really spicy, but if you want to spice it up you can throw in a chili pepper or hot sauce. In the meantime I’ll be over here enjoying 15 servings of salsa on my own; feel free to come and join me… at least I have this little man to keep me company! 🙂
