  • 2 pints grape tomatoes chopped
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 jalapeño chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 loosely packed cup of cilantro chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Stir. Season to taste.


  • If you don't have cherry tomatoes, you can use whatever tomatoes you have on hand. Just chop them into small enough bites.
  • Feel free to use a mix of peppers, if you wish. We just prefer jalapeños so it's spicy without being overwhelmingly spicy.
  • You can use red onion instead of yellow, but it won't be as good. The yellow onion brings out a much sweeter flavor in the salsa whereas the red onion brings out a hotter, more intense flavor.
Expert Tips:
  • You can use pre-chopped produce from the store.
  • If you don’t have a citrus juicer, you can twist and squeeze the lime once it’s cut to extract the juice.
  • Cherry tomatoes are the best tomato to use for this salsa.
  • This keeps for about 4-7 days in the fridge.
  • This recipe is vegan, paleo, and keto!
