Salsa Fresca – All Fresh Ingredients

I’ve had tomatoes sitting in the window ripening – the last of the tomatoes that were still green on the vine.  Well holidays call for appetizers and everyone loves chips and salsa!  Here is a salsa that is sure to please!


What you need:

  • 2 Large ripe roma tomatoes
  • ½ white onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons diced, fresh jalapeño pepper
  • 1 bunch of fresh cilantro, washed, stemmed and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Large lime
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke

How to Do it:

To juice the lime, roll it on the counter to loosen the juices.  Cut and juice with a citrus reamer.  It will release the juice and some of the pulp.



Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix gently.


Refrigerate for about an hour before serving to allow the flavors to blend.


Makes about 2 ½ cups of salsa.

Serve on tacos, with chips, as a side to an omelet – it’s a great side to just about anything!
