  • Chef knife
  • Mixing bowl


  • 4 Roma tomatoes, de-seeded and finely chopped ($0.72)
  • ½ medium white onion, finely chopped ($0.12)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced ($0.04)
  • 2 tablespoon finely minced cilantro ($0.07)
  • 1 large jalapeño, de-seeded and minced ($0.25)
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice ($0.18)
  • Sea salt to taste ($0.01)

To Serve optional

  • Tortilla chips


  • To begin, slice the tomatoes and remove the inner seed portion (if you prefer a runnier salsa, omit this part). Then, dice what's left of the tomatoes and add them to a mixing bowl.
  • Next, finely dice the white onion and mince the garlic and cilantro. Cut the jalapeño in half lengthwise. With a small spoon, scrape out the seeds and finely mince the pepper. Add everything to the mixing bowl with the tomatoes.
  • Juice the lime into the mixing bowl, and add sea salt to taste. Stir to combine, then taste and adjust seasonings to your preferences. Add chiles for more spice, lime for more tang, or garlic for more zestiness.
  • Serve this salsa fresca with some homemade tortilla chips for a tasty snack or appetizer. Happy eating!
