Salsa is just so good. It’s fresh and healthy and simple to make. So why not.

Serves: 6 guests, depending on how much they love to dip their chips.


hand blender or food processor

cutting board

chef’s knife


2 cups pico (linked recipe)

1 chili pepper, seeds removed and finely chopped

2 TBSP fresh cilantro – finely chopped

1 large lemon or lime – juiced

1 tsp fine sugar

1 16 oz. can diced tomatoes

course salt

cracked pepper

For the salsa:


Put all the ingredients in a large blender cup or the bowl of the food processor. Blend thoroughly until your desired consistency is achieved. Taste to make sure the spices are to your liking. Add salt or pepper or sugar as needed. Ā Sometimes I even add another splash of citrus.

Store in an air tight container for a couple hours before serving to cool and let flavors combine. Pairs great with chips (linked recipe).
