  • 1 1/2 pounds tomatoes (vine-ripe, roma or heirloom), cored and quartered -- I like Roma best for texture
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 green onion, ends trimmed
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 jalapeños (with seeds If you like heat!), diced
  • 1 heaping handful of cilantro (about 1/2 cup)
  • Half a lime, juiced
  • Pinch of cumin
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and pulse until it gets to the desired consistency; you can make it chunky or smooth! I like a little bit of texture so I go with slightly chunky. Add salt to taste. Chill salsa for 1-2 hours or overnight to let flavors come together. Serve with chips, on nachos, on chili, or anything you like!
