  • 4 large Roma tomatoes (weight is 1.22 lbs or 19.5oz)
  • 1 red or green jalapeno pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic, optional
  • ½ a small white onion
  • 1 handful of cilantro leaves and little bit of the stems too
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • small pinch of black pepper, optional

Roughly chop the tomatoes and place half of them into the blender.
Roughly chop the onion and jalapeno and add to the blender with the garlic.
Then add the remaining chopped tomatoes, the cilantro, salt and black pepper if using.
Begin by pulsing the ingredients until the blender gets going – if your tomatoes are not ripe enough you’ll need to add a couple of tablespoons of water to get the blades going.
Once you have enough liquid at the bottom you can blend at low speed until the salsa is nice and smooth.
Taste and if needed add more salt. Pour into a serving container or store in the fridge, covered, until ready to serve.
Please notice this salsa won’t keep more than a day or max too in the fridge. It’s really best to enjoy it within 30 minutes of blending. Also do note that the longer it sits the darker the red tone will become.
If you don’t want a perfectly smooth salsa like pictured here, you can pulse or use a food processor to achieve a chunkier salsa.

  • Yummy recipe! A staple in my household. We make something similar and my people love garlic, so I add quite a bit. Sometimes I use roasted garlic for a slightly different flavor. If the tomatoes are too acidic, add a pinch of sugar. And we add lemon or lime as well. Makes even out of season hot house tomatoes taste great! Thanks for sharing!
