The Best Salsa Ever….Period!


I recently had an overabundance of fresh tomatoes from my cottage neighbours garden (thank you Don) that needed to be used up quickly. This salsa uses a mix of canned and fresh tomatoes so it can be made all year round, but it is soooo much better with local tomatoes. I am told that it is just like the salsa of a well known Tex-Mex chain that started in Ottawa with its’ famous fajitas. You know the one that puts a bowl of hot tortilla chips and homemade salsa in front of you as soon as you take a seat!



1-28 oz. can diced tomatoes

3/4 cup chopped red onion

1 1/2 tsp. garlic salt

1 small can tomato paste

2 tbsp. fresh cilantro

4 large fresh tomatoes, diced

1 fresh jalapeño, chopped

1 large clove garlic, minced

3 tbsp. olive oil

3 tsp. salt

Hand chop veggies and then pulse in food processor. This keeps for 5 days in the fridge (if it lasts that long)! Enjoy!

Mmmm – I can’t wait to make this recipe with the fresh tomatoes from my garden! Thanks for sharing this yumminess!

This is a keeper! Friday nights are nacho nights in this household, and we make our own guacamole, but have yet to make our own salsa. This recipe look like the right mix of everything we love! Thanks for sharing – can’t wait to give it a try!! :-)

I love a good salsa recipe and yours looks great! I always add cilantro to mine too, most people like it and then some don’t. I do!!!

Delicious!!! I made my own this year, and have some more tomatoes waiting to do another batch. It is the best!! :)

My fajita recipe is on the blog too, back at the beginning of the summer. Just search the recipe section Dannyelle.

Its not a lot of cilantro, so doesn’t turn off the non-cilantro likers:)

Glad you liked it Tanya, and it is so easy too!
