Tonight is a taco night and I made some homemade salsa to go with it 🙂  It super easy, uber delicious, fresh and a fun way to get some veggies!


What I used

  • 3 1/3 tomatoes
  • 3/4 white onion
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (w/o the insides and the seeds)
  • cilantro to taste
  • a couple squirts of lime juice to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste


Chop it all up, (use a food processor for the tomatoes if you want the salsa a little more juicy and less chunky) and mix it together, it’s super easy!

It’s also super cheap!  the cilantro and jalapeno were less than a dollar, onions and tomatoes aren’t that expensive either and this made way more than a traditional tub of salsa 🙂
