This chunky, garden-fresh salsa is the best way to use homegrown tomatoes!


Units Scale
  • 1 pound Fresh Ripe Tomatoes, quartered and seeded
  • 1 Jalapeno, halved and seeded
  • 2 Shallots, peeled
  • 2 cloves whole Garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Cilantro Leaves
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Lime Juice, from 2 Limes
  • Pinch of Sugar


  1. Quarter and seed the tomatoes; this will remove excess moisture. Place the tomatoes in a colander to continue to drain them as you prepare the remaining ingredients. Into a food processor, place the remaining ingredients, the jalapeno, shallots, whole garlic cloves, cilantro, salt and pepper, and fresh lime juice. Add tomatoes into the food processor.
  2. Pulse the salsa until it reaches your desired consistency, between 5-6 times. Test the flavor, and if a pinch of sugar is needed to reduce the acid level, this is a good time to add it. Serve immediately, or place in an airtight container in the fridge
