Fresh Salsa

This is one of those recipes that only takes 15 minutes to make and tastes a million times better than anything from a jar. If you don't have the time to dice the tomatoes, you can pulse them a few times in a food processor. The salsa won't look as pretty, but it will taste just as fabulous.


  • Yield: Serves 13 (serving size: 1/4 cup)


  • 3 cups diced seeded tomato
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1/3 cup diced seeded jalapeño pepper (1 large)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

Tip: Adults should dice the jalapeños and onions in this recipe to avoid teary-eyed kids.
