Salsa is a mouth memory that immediately transports you to sunshine and salt air.

This simple salsa recipe is the real deal.

Made in Mexico.

With fresh Mexican ingredients.

Ultimately devoured in Mexico.

If you’re not in Mexico or have never been that’s ok. This salsa will take your taste buds there.

What this salsa is NOT is any jarred salsa you may be used to so please don’t compare the two.

Sharpen up that knife and let’s get chopping!


  • 6 Roma tomatoes, seeded
  • 1 cup white onion
  • 2 jalapeños, de-seeded ( for spicier version keep some seeds)
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • fresh cilantro (optional and to taste)

⬆️ all above items finely chopped but not pulverized.

The goal is to be able to get all the items onto one tortilla chip or cucumber.

the seasoning

  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cumin

this is how we do it

Start with the cilantro.

Give it a good rinse and hang it up somewhere to drip dry while you chop everything else up.

De-seed your jalapeños and tomatoes:

Fine chop everything like so:

Go back to your cilantro.

De-stem and guillotine cut into fine pieces. Don’t crush or drag the cilantro.

Scrunch up all the cilantro into a tight ball and using a sharp knife finely chop.

Put everything into a container and add the seasonings adjusting to your preferences.

This is authentic salsa and you can’t deny the freshness of it.

You can almost taste the love that it took to finely chop all those veggies💚

Enjoy on fish, in a layered dip, with eggs in the morning, in your tacos or just in a one bite nacho chip.
