Chunky Garden Salsa

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

With the {over}abundance of tomatoes we have in our garden right now, this recipe helps take a few off our hands. Generally, our kids don't like fresh tomatoes much, but for some reason they inhale this salsa.

I'm sure it has nothing to do with the chips. Our favorite go-along chips are Tostitos Hint of Lime.


~ 8 - 10 tomatoes {Romas tend to be a little firmer and less 'juicy'}
~ 2 jalepenos, seeded and chopped
~ 4 green onions, chopped
~ 4 cloves of garlic, minced
~ Juice of 1 lemon and 1 lime {fresh is the best!}
~ 1 Tbsp. salt


1. Seed and cut the tomatoes into small pieces. Place in a strainer and let the juice drain.

2. Combine remaining ingredients and add tomatoes when they are well-drained.

3. Enjoy!


  1. Looks gorgeous! I'll definitly try it!

  2. This looks delicious! I should try this salsa when making bruschettas.

  3. Oh how I love salsa. I really need to try and make it. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I just canned up some salsa with my mom this past weekend!!! LOVE IT!!!!! Have you ever made fruit salsa? We eat it with cinnamon chips (you can get them at Meijer or Sam's club)...

  5. Yum! I love fresh salsa, I think I am going to pick up the stuff to try out your recipe, thanks for sharing!

  6. You know in our household, no one can ever get enough salsa. Hint of Lime Tostitos chips, oh that's fighting words. We can't get enough of them, and if there is no salsa that is OK with us. Love those!

    I will have to also try Danielle's suggestion of fruit salsa with cinnamon chips!

    You know that is one sure fire way to make sure your kids are eating all their veggies!
