Tomato salsa with 5 fresh ingredients. Easy to make!|Designers Sweet Spot|

Tomato salsa has only 5 delicious fresh ingredients. We often make this salsa to serve with nachos, tacos or even with breakfast omelets.  Once you have made fresh tomato salsa, you will never go back to the store bought variety, I guarantee it!

Welcome back to the Ultimate Recipe Challenge! This linkup is the brain child of Kim Six Fix, thanks Kim for putting this all together! This month’s challenge is tomatoes, which are probably one of my favorite foods.

My favorite combination of tomatoes is multi-colored red Roma tomatoes, yellow pear and black heirloom varieties. This combination can also be purchased in a small variety pack from Costco or even Aldi’s grocery store. You can make this recipe with regular tomatoes too, but I love the bright colors in this side dish.

Here’s what to do:

Tomato Salsa with Five Delicious Fresh Garden Ingredients


  • 2 cups mixed colored tomatoes or 4 large tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • Juice from 1/2 squeezed lemon or lime
  • Tabasco sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. 1. Wash tomatoes, place in blender. Chop coarsely. Put in medium sized bowl.
  2. 2. Add onion (or chop in the blender)
  3. 3. Add garlic.
  4. 4. Using a lemon reamer, juice the sliced lemon right over the bowl of tomatoes.
  5. 5. Add a few drops of tobacco sauce, salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve with chips, sour cream, olives or nacho cheese. Add an avocado the second day for delicious guacamole. Makes 4 cups.
