A tasty homemade salsa from fresh tomatoes you can make in your blender in just five minutes!
Some of my favorite things about summer are the sunny evenings, walking around barefoot and eating chips and salsa for dinner.
Well, maybe that’s just me using summer to justify calling a big pile of crunchiness a square meal.
To make me feel like I’m actually doing something for that bikini figure instead of just hanging out on the couch with my good friends Remote Control, Foot Rub and Tortilla Chips I started making salsa from fresh tomatoes.
It is so amazingly good!
And my butt is not the only thing benefitting – I also feel about thismuch better about spending a fortune on my Vitamix (I have this one from Amazon!*) because I’m making something other than smoothies in it.
And this super fresh salsa really couldn’t be any easier.
If you’re using cherry tomatoes you won’t even need a chopping board. I cut the green onions right into the Vitamix and throw everything else in with them.
Since the tomatoes are really the star in this salsa they should be ripe and full of flavor.
If you like things hot you can always add some jalapeno or chili.
And then you can eat tortilla chips for the rest of your summer and call it “working out”.
Well, at least that’s what I’ll be doing.
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes (or normal tomatoes, quartered)
- 4 green onions
- 1/3 cup cilantro, packed
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Add half of the tomatoes and all other ingredients (in the order as written) to a high-power blender. Pulse 5 times. Add the remaining tomatoes and pulse 10-15 times. You can make this into a more chunky or into a more smooth salsa, depending on how long you blend it for. Serve immediately.
