My husband had been buying some salsa from the store at $4.99 per container. So I purchased ingredients that was listed on the label, and made my own. It took a few tries but this worked best for our tastes. I had to list an amount for the cilantro, but I just grabbed about 1/2 a bunch (probably made 1/4-1/2 cup), chopped it and added it. It's also best if it's refrigerated for at least 1 hr so the flavors can blend.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Finely chop tomatoes, onions and chile peppers and put in bowl.
  2. Chop cilantro and add.
  3. Add garlic powder.
  4. Cut limes in half. Squeeze over bowl cut side up so only juice goes in bowl.
  5. Mix gently.
  6. Can serve immediately or cover and refrigerate at least one hour.

Do the onions soften up in the jar? I don't like crunchy onions. Thanks for the recipe :)

Excellent fresh salsa! Just the right amount of each flavor. The only change I made was using 3 minced garlic cloves instead of the garlic powder. Thanks for this keeper!
