Tomato Salsa

Salsa in your food processor under 5 mins

Who doesn’t like Tomato Salsa that is fresh, tangy, super quick and hassle free?

Who likes going through the pain of fine chopping all the ingredients? Not me!!!

This salsa is great because

  • Delicious and Super Fresh
  • Needs basic pantry ingredients
  • Ready in 5 mins
  • Stores well
  • Almost No Chopping

I am a strong woman who is capable of many things, but resisting a fresh homemade salsa with chips is not one of them!

I do not like store bought salsa and always prefer making my own at home and why not if it only takes 5 mins and just a few pulses of your food processor. So, without further ado, let’s get Dippin!!

Makes 1 medium bowl of Salsa

You’ll need:

1 medium yellow onion, peeled halved

2 cloves garlic peeled

1 large tomato – Quartered

1/2 Jalapeno – deseeded (keep the seeds if you like very spicy salsa)

½ tsp salt and pepper or to taste

1 tbsp lime juice

1 tbsp tomato ketchup

½ tsp paprika

½ tsp cumin powder – optional but recommended

Handful coriander leaves – keep the stems, they have a great flavour of freshness


In a food processor on grind setting throw in the onion, jalapeno, garlic cloves and salt. Pulse repeatedly till it gets fine, takes about 5-9 pulses

Now add, lime juice, tomato, coriander, paprika, cumin, pepper and blitz again on pulse setting till nice and fine (not too fine, we don’t want a puree)

Scrape the sides and now add 1 tbsp tomato ketchup and pulse twice to mix well

Transfer to your bowl and enjoy with your fav chips

Delicious, laid back, easy, healthy snacking. Store in a small jar for 4-5 days in the refrigerator
