Simple Tomato Salsa

This nice & fresh tomato salsa simply tastes amazing and is great on its own or alongside another dish.

Tomato Salsa

There typically isn’t anything that isn’t considered paleo friendly in a salsa normally. However, you may find recipes that you use additional ingredients such as an oil or salad dressing that contain ingredients that are not paleo friendly.

You might be more familiar with the name pico de gallo rather than tomato salsa. These are the same dish that contains a combination of fresh ingredients that are listed below.  This dish is best fresh, and I wouldn’t recommend keeping it any longer than just a couple of days before discarding it.

This dish goes amazing with some paleo friendly nachos, crunchy sweet potato fries or pretty much anything else where a refreshing salsa works well.

I have a nice & short video below that shows you through all the steps to putting this dish together. If you just want the text recipe you can find it right below the video.

Tomato Salsa Recipe


  • 3 tomatoes, diced
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 1 tsp. jalapeno chilli, diced (Optional)
  • 3 Tbsp. coriander/cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tsp. lime juice
  • Salt & Pepper


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Season with salt & pepper.

Cooking Tips

  • You can serve this straight away, or you can let it sit for a couple of hours to allow for the flavors to develop. If you decide to let it sit for a few hours, make sure you cover it and place it in a fridge.
  • If you need a lot of salsa, then this recipe is easily scaled without any complications. Simply double, triple the ingredients for the number of people you need to feed.
  • The jalapenos are optional as you may not like spicy things. If you love a salsa that has a bit of zing to it, then I recommend adding it. One teaspoon may not be enough for some people so try adding more if you find it a bit underwhelming.
  • If you love the sweeter taste of cherry tomatoes, then you can replace tomatoes and use them instead. I would use about 200g (7 oz.) instead of the three large tomatoes I use in this recipe.
  • After cutting the chili make sure you give your hands a good wash straight away so you can avoid getting chili into your eyes or anywhere else where it might sting.
  • If you do want to have a bit of oil in your salsa, then drizzle some extra virgin oil over the top. Alternatively, you can mix it in when you go to mix the rest of the ingredients.
