Ingredients

  • 1 pound Roma tomatoes (about 6 medium-large tomatoes)
  • 1/2 medium white onion
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, stem removed
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 cup cilantro sprigs, packed
  • 1 lime, juiced (about 2-3 tablespoons)
  • salt, to taste

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor. Pulse until salsa is blended to your liking - chunky, a little chunky or smooth.
  • Taste and season with more salt, if necessary.
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Notes

If you accidentally over-blend your salsa and it becomes too watery, simply strain out some of the liquid until it's just right.
Discard the jalapeño seeds if you don't want the salsa to be spicy. If you prefer a lot of heat, add in an extra jalapeño, a serrano or even a habanero.
Storage: This homemade salsa can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 10 to 12 days.
