Fresh Tomato and Cilantro Salsa

Fresh Tomato and Cilantro Salsa

I came up with this fresh tomato and cilantro salsa recipe when I was making my guacamole one day. While I love guacamole, sometimes the avocados can be too filling if eating it with tacos or a taco salad. I decided to try making a salsa version instead by removing the avocados and adding extra lime juice. The end product is my new favorite salsa!  One of the main reasons is because I do not like onions. Almost every salsa that is store bought has the onion flavor I try to avoid, but I love salsa made with fresh tomatoes. You can easily add chopped onions to my fresh tomato and cilantro salsa if you’d like. Adding a chopped pepper or jalapeño is also a great addition for both flavor and heat.

Shopping List

  • 1 lb. of grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 lime
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
  • Camp Mix seasoning (you can purchase here. You can also just use salt, pepper, and garlic salt… just use even quantities/shakes of each)
  • 1 bag of your favorite tortilla chips (I get the organic white corn chips from Trader Joe’s)


  • Wash and dry the tomatoes and cut in halves
  • In a glass bowl, combine the tomatoes, the juice of one lime, and 1/3 cup of chopped cilantro
  • Sprinkle with Camp Mix seasoning for flavor (I do about 10 shakes)
  • Mix together (I mix mine in a glass container with a lid so I can shake it to get everything mixed well)
  • You can serve right away, but I like to marinate in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours for better flavor
  • Serve with your favorite tortilla chips or with tacos (goes great with my slow cooker chicken taco recipe)
