The Best (and Easiest) Fresh Salsa!

One-minute fresh salsa (pico de gallo)


  • 6 cups tomatoes
  • 1 onion (quartered)
  • 1-2 medium to large peppers
  • 1 handful of cilantro
  • 1 tbsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp sugar (or to taste)


  • Clean the peppers and remove the seeds and veins.
  • Put all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse till well combined.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings or ingredients if needed.
  • Pour into a jar and serve in small bowls with tortilla chips. Keep refrigerated.


Note: This is not a canning salsa because it does not contain high quantities of acids like vinegar or high quantities of salt. This is a fresh salsa and it will keep in your fridge for about 1-2 weeks.  I have friends who have canned this recipe and reported good results, but I cannot personally recommend it because of the uncertain acid levels.  Use your favorite vinegar based salsa recipe for home canned salsa to be safest.
