Easy Homemade Salsa at Home

1 can chopped tomatoes (no herbs or flavours)

1 bunch of cilantro/coriander, just the leaves

1 clove of raw garlic, minced finely

2 shallots, minced finely

juice from 1 lime

1 jalepeno pepper, chopped (optional)


  1. Place all the ingredients in food processor.
  2. Blend and chop.
  3. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until time to serve.


That is it. Very simple, no frills, and fresh approach to salsa. I opt for the canned tomato because it is more flavourful and a reliable source year-round. The other ingredients are all items we always have in our fridge or flower pots, so salsa cravings can be satiated without running to the store.
