Salsa from scratch
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6-8
Fresh salsa is easy to make from scratch!
  • 3 large tomatoes, diced
  • ¼ sweet onion, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and minced (add another if you like it spicy)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ⅛ tsp sugar, organic preferably (optional)
  1. Dice and mince all ingredients and add to a medium glass bowl. I pretty much go in the order I've listed here. I use a pyrex glass bowl that has a lid for easy storage.
  2. I'd classify this salsa as mild to medium. For spicier salsa add in a 2nd jalapeno.
  3. Marinate in fridge for 4 hours or longer for complex flavors. Keeps up to a week, but won't last that long!
  4. * For Daniel fast, Daniel plan or Whole 30 omit the sugar
