Quick and easy fresh salsa is ready in minutes. It’s perfect for tacos, nachos, or just with tortilla chips.
I did not expect to like this salsa.
I don’t care for tomatoes and I typically prefer smooth restaurant-style salsas to chunky ones. But I love this stuff.
The tomatoes are diced, so you aren’t getting huge chunks of them. The red onion adds a full flavor and crisp crunch, and the jalapeño gives the whole thing the perfect amount of heat.
When you toss the whole mixture with lime juice and salt and pepper, the flavors meld together for a quick and easy fresh salsa that tastes like it took hours to make.
Since first making this recipe, I’ve made it another half dozen times at least. I’ve enjoyed it on quesadillas and taquitos, on nachos and chimichangas. I’ve eaten more than my share of tortilla chips because I just want to shovel it in.
For those who love chunky salsa, this stuff is a no-brainer. For those who profess their love of the puréed version, I beg you to try this. I bet my quick and easy fresh salsa will be your new go-to condiment.
Quick and Easy Fresh Salsa
10 oz. grape tomatoes
1 red onion
2 tbs. chopped jalapeños
1 clove minced garlic
juice of one lime
salt and pepper to taste
Dice tomatoes and onion. Mix together with jalapeño, garlic, and lime juice. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately (it’s extra good with homemade tortilla chips).

Mmm that salsa looks super refreshing! I used to only link salsa that was super blendy and smooth, but lately I have been preferring the chunks!
This is definitely a chunky salsa lover’s salsa! Thanks, Heather!
