Mom’s Fresh Tomato Salsa

  • Author: Tara Deal Rochford
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: a lot of salsa!
  • Diet: Vegetarian


A Fresh Tomato Salsa that combines canned and fresh tomatoes for a flavor that can’t be beat. The perfect use for summer produce.



1 14 oz can tomato sauce

1 lb fresh tomatoes, diced

1 small onion chopped

2 bundles green onion, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 jalapeno with seeds, chopped

2 jalapenos without seeds, chopped

1 tablespoon water

¼½ teaspoon salt (or salt to taste)


In the base of a blender, pour the tomato sauce, tomatoes, onion, green onion, garlic, jalapenos and water.

Alternate pulsing and stirring the mixture until it is the desired consistency (I like it a little chunky). 

Pour into an airtight container and store in the fridge until you are ready to serve.

I think this salsa tastes best after it sits in the fridge for a few hours, so plan time to prep this recipe if you are serving it to a crowd.
