Fresh Tomato Salsa

Salsa 4

It’s football time! That time when the livings rooms are full of people crowded around the TV set, cheering their team on or yelling at the ref’s calls between mouthfuls of salsa and chips (or with mouthfuls of salsa and chips).

Salsa and chips.

The classic game-time snack. And oh-so-easy to make.

And this salsa is made from fresh tomatoes! Oh yeahhh; salsa and chips just got that much better!


This recipe is super easy and feeds a crowd! First chop up your tomatoes, onions, pepper(s), and cilantro and mix them in a large bowl.

Then add in lime juice, and salt and pepper, and stir it up again.

Place it in the fridge for about an hour to give the tomatoes some time to release their yummy juices. Then grab a bowl of chips and a seat in front of the game!

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Fresh tomatoes make this salsa the perfect side-dish or snack!


  • 11 tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • up to 3 bell peppers
  • 4 tbsp chopped cilantro*
  • 1 lime's juice
  • salt and pepper


  1. Chop the tomatoes, onion and bell pepper. Mix in a large bowl and add the cilantro.
  2. Mix in the lime juice, salt and pepper. Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving


*Parsley can be substituted for cilantro; not completely the same, but it works

**Before serving the salsa I like to let it sit at room temperature for about half an hour because I don't like straight-from-the-fridge-cold salsa; just my preference, though
