We have the bounty of all the ingredients you need coming straight from the fields or straight from your garden - or a mix of both!

Gather some fresh veggies, get out your sharpest knife, and get chopping!

The Basic Formula for Garden Fresh Salsa

Basic ingredients:

  • 6-9 tomatoes

  • 1-2 onions (any kind)

  • 1-2 cloves garlic

  • 1-2 tsp salt

  • black pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice

  • Optional additions: cilantro, corn, black beans, bell peppers, mangoes, peaches


  • Chop all the ingredients to your desired size - minced or super chunky - it's up to you!

  • Place them in a bowl and mix.

  • Add any optional ingredients - experiment and try something new!

  • Store in a container in the fridge for up to 7 days.

  • Note: Your salsa may be better the following day after the flavors have mingled in the bowl - see what you like better.
