• 3-4 medium tomatoes (or a pack or two of cherry tomatoes)
  • onion — red, yellow, or white
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 lime, squeezed
  • Jalapeno (however much your taste buds want — if spicy isn’t your thing, add a little cayenne pepper for a zesty-zing that won’t scorch your tongue)
  • 2-4 cloves garlic
  • Salt + pepper (to taste)
  • ¼ tsp cumin


  • 1-2 TB nutritional yeast
  • ½ avocado
  • Mango
  • Pineapple
  • Cucumber/zucchini (thinly sliced/diced) if your flavors are too strong/spicy! 


There are a couple ways to do this:

  1. Chop everything up, combine in a large bowl — pico-style.
  2. Blend (pulse if you want semi-chunky salsa) everything in a blender, and add extra diced tomatoes/onions/mango/avocado/etc. afterwards for some additional textural stimulation.
  3. Combine ANY of the ingredients to a store-bought salsa if you’re a convenience-over-all-things type of human, or if you are in a pinch!  (Most people can’t tell the difference between homemade and store-bought salsa if you add some fresh ‘maters, onions, cilantro, or mango/pineapple…. It’s a very easy way to elevate a party dish if you’re running short on time/energy!)
