Using perfectly ripe tomatoes is absolutely key to making beautiful tomato salsa. In fact, using the best, freshest ingredients you can find/afford will put you in a good place to make the most amazing fresh tomato salsa!
Just image it with some guacamole on your fajitas and tacos, inside your burritos and all over loaded homemade nachos, in salads and sandwiches… the uses for this delicately simple dish are endless! I even spooned some on top of cheese on toast and, I can tell you now… it was like little bites of heaven. Exquisite!
The most important part of this recipe for me is to do nothing. Yes, you heard me right! Make sure you put this bad boy in the fridge and allow those flavours to develop for a few hours. So yes – sit back, relax and do nothing while your salsa and the fridge work the marvellous magic. It’ll be the best decision you ever made!
It really is very simple when you break it down…

First and foremost, let’s prep those veggies.
Quarter the tomatoes (4 x large) with a sharp knife on a chopping board then scrape out all the seeds.
Next, chop them all into small pieces (about 1cm square) and place into a small bowl.
Now peel and finely dice the onion (1/2 small) and mince the garlic (1 x clove).
Add them both into the bowl with the tomatoes.
Then add the olive oil (2 tbsp) and give everything a really thorough mix.
At this point, I implore you to cover it and place into the fridge for a few hours to allow those flavours to mellow and develop. Trust me, this is the secret weapon in making incredible tomato salsa!
Then, when you are ready to serve it, roughly chop some fresh coriander (handful) and mix it through the salsa.
And there you have it! It’s as simple as that. Super fresh, super healthy and super delicious fresh tomato salsa. YUM! If you don’t use it all, it will keep covered in the fridge for up to 3 days.
