After trying my Easy Homemade Salsa recipe, you might never buy store bought again!
It has already been a good week. Despite my bum foot, I'm feeling pretty good.
It is finally May- yay for consistently warmer weather!
Cinco de Mayo!
AND- fresh and Easy Homemade Salsa.
You see, summer is salsa making time in my kitchen. I use my own Easy Homemade Salsa recipe.
I grow tons of tomatoes, peppers and herbs in the summer making it a breeze. I usually go through at least one batch a week through the summer months.
It is so easy because you just throw all the ingredients' in a chopper, blender or food processer and go.
I don’t have a food processor, so I make mine in two batches in my little chopper.
The end result is colorful and delicious. I really enjoy using a combination of tomatoes including yellow and purples ones for a really vibrant salsa.
Serve with any of my Mexican favorites, but especially my Black Bean and Avocado Quesadilla from Tuesday!
Easy Homemade Salsa
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes
- ½ small red onion, roughly chopped
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and roughly chopped (optional)
- ¼ cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
- 1 lime, juiced
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- Put all ingredients into a food processor, chopper or blender and mix until chopped into desired consistency.

Jess @hellotofit says
I made my first homemade salsa last week, and love it so far! Who knew it could be so easy?? Hehe. Thanks for sharing, hope you're having a great weekend so far!
Miz Helen says
Nothing like a great homemade Salsa, this looks awesome. Hope you have a very special Mothers Day weekend and thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday this week.
I love homemade salsa! However I don't get to make it too often as it is one of the things my husband loves to make so I let him make it. I love how easy it is and how you can customize it, especially good when we can run out to the garden in the summer and get everything we need to make it.
Homemade salsa is so easy to make and much better than anything you can buy at the store! I'm excited to give your recipe a try. Normally we throw whatever we have in the house into the processer so it's never quite the same!

Lori @ TheHealthMinded.com says
I never tire of fresh salsa which is completely different from store-bought! Just looking at that adorable jar of it that you made makes me so thankful spring and summer are here!
I agree! The jar is jut a mason jar without the lid-- from Michael's!

When I visit you'll make this for me right! Homemade salsa so so much better than store bought especially this time of year.
Absolutely! Come on over 🙂
Susie @ SuzLyfe says
Salsa is one of my absolute favorite foods, period. Hand me a spoon, back away!
Me too. It's kind of an obsession.
I love homemade salsa! It's seriously SO easy and delicious! I like your idea of using cherry tomatoes--I'll have to do that! I always mash a good bit of it into an avocado and, presto, homemade guacamole! 😉 Happy WARM weather!
I like all the colorful skins with the cherry tomatoes. Avocado makes everything better! I've got an avocado recipe I think you will love next week. Just made it last night and woke up thinking about it 🙂
Heather @Fit n Cookies says
Yum yum! I'm not a huge fan of chunky salsa myself, but this does look delicious!
You could also blend it a bit more to get the pureed version 🙂 Happy Thursday!
Libby Haire says
Looks great! Now if I just had the hardened I could make this without leaving home! LOL! Can't wait to try it. Happy Thursday.
Thanks Libby! Have a great day.
