Fresh and Easy Summer Salsa

A few days ago, I bought some gorgeous vine ripened tomatoes. They smelled fabulous, and looked beautiful, so I took them home and made some super flavorful lime and cilantro salsa!  I can't stop eating it!  Really, it is SO delicious! 

You'll love this fresh, salsa, too - especially if you've been growing tomatoes at home or picking them up at your local farmer's market. For a fun twist, try making this with different colored tomatoes.


  • 3 large, ripe tomatoes, diced or sliced *
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro*
  • 1/8 small onion, skin removed
  • 1 squeeze of half a fresh lime
  • 1/4 tsp salt (I added more in the end, so salt to taste)
*Creative Green Living recommends purchasing these ingredients as organic where available to avoid GMOs, pervasive pesticides and/or questionable farming practices.

Put all your ingredients in a blender.  Mix until most of the large chunks have been blended up.  


Place in a jar or glass food storage container and chill for 30 minutes to 1 hour.


Serve with tortilla chips or as a topping for tacos.
