Making salsa seems like a chore, but what if you could make your own salsa in 5 minutes or less?
Did I catch your interest?

If you think nothing takes 5 minutes you have not met me. I have ditched all my time consuming recipes and I barely do anything these days that doesn’t take as long as ordering a Grande Soy Latte with my name spelled incorrectly.

So, salsa is the bomb! Put it on: rice bowls, nacho chips, veggies and hummus, veggies and guacamole, quinoa bowls, quesadillas, crackers…need I go on? I think not! I know your mouth is watering already just thinking about it…so let’s go ahead and make your own salsa!

What I like about this recipe is that you can choose to add as little or as much salt as you like and you can even add hot sauce.

Want to know what is NOT in this salsa? Preservatives (well, there is fresh lemon juice…if that counts), natural flavor, xanthan gum, maltodextrin, yeast extract…I think you get the point.

So with minimum amount of chopping you can get a beautiful salsa dish.



  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 4 Tbsp red onion (eyeball it!)
  • ¼ cup of parsley
  • 2 ½ cups of coarsely chopped tomatoes
  • 2-3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 0-½ tsp sea salt
  • Pepper, jalapeno or hot sauce (optional)



  • Place garlic in the high speed blender and blend
  • Add onion and blend
  • Add parsley and blend
  • Add the remaining ingredients and blend using tamper if necessary until desired texture is achieved.

Don’t put too much seasoning to start. Taste and add as you go! When you make your own salsa, you can always mix in more salt or hot sauce yourself with a spoon to avoid it being too hot or salty.

Let us know your favourite way to enjoy salsa!
