This easy, healthy salsa happens to be my favorite summertime recipe. Skip the store-bought seasoning packets and make this with fresh ingredients straight from your garden or farmer’s market. Our friends and family ask for it whenever they come over!

The best part about this recipe is it doesn’t require a lot of dishes or utensils. That’s especially important to me during the summer because when it’s beautiful outside, the last thing I feel like doing is slaving over the sink.


Before you dive into the recipe, grab this FREE Summer Chef’s Set of Mrs. Meyer’s hand soap + dish soap + multi-surface spray + Grove Collaborative Bubble Up with your first order from my friends at Grove Collaborative. It’s everything you need to make cleanup effortless, from salsa to full-on summer barbeques. (If you’re already a customer, you’ll get a free set of Grove Walnut Scrubber Sponges.)

Now, here’s the recipe:


Garden Salsa

  • 6 Roma tomatoes (or about a pound of whatever variety you have on hand)
  • 1 small handful of cilantro
  • 3 green onions
  • ½-1 jalapeno (depending on how spicy you like it!)
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


The next part is so simple: Toss all the ingredients in your food processor and give it a whirl! I prefer chunky salsa, so I’m careful not to over-process it. Then place it in the fridge for ½ hour.


While you wait for the salsa to chill, give the food processor a quick scrub with your Bubble Up dish brush set and soap. Then wipe down the counters with your Mrs. Meyer’s multi-surface. So easy!


Serve the salsa with chips, on top of tacos, or spooned over scrambled eggs or tofu.
