Fresh Tomato & Onion Salsa

Living in Texas and eating Tex-Mex food for more than a decade, I have come to love Mexican food. Rich in flavor, aroma and spiciness while still staying healthy, it is probably the closest relative to Indian food. Unfortunately, most restaurants serve high calorie and high fat versions of Mexican staples such as Guacamole turning them into diet disasters. The salsa recipe here is made from healthy and fresh ingredients, the way mexican food is supposed to be. Serve with warm tortillas as an appetizer or use it as a condiment.

What you need

  • 3 Tomatoes
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 1 Green Chili
  • 2 Tbsp Chopped Fresh Cilantro
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Black Pepper


Dice the tomatoes, onion and green chili. Add the chopped fresh cilantro, ground cumin, olive oil, kosher salt, cayenne pepper and ground black pepper. Mix with a fork or toss in a bowl. This will result in a chunky consistency. If you want a smoother consistency, use a small blender and quickly pulse about half the salsa and mix it with the other half.
