Easy Salsa Fresca

This Easy Salsa Fresca is a a super simple recipe for one of the most popular condiments in the Americas, and one of my personal favorite versions of salsa.  This is a delicious, easy, nutrient dense recipe that goes great with our Tacos de Lengua recipe, taco salads, as alternative toppings for burgers, and so much more. It’s also super pretty. Look how fresh and vibrant it looks!

It comes together in a few minutes from ingredients you likely already have on hand and can really spice up a ton of dishes with fantastic color and flavor. Spoon it on everything! Eggs, burgers, tacos, ground meats, in sandwiches, on chili, oh the things you can do!

Make a big old batch and keep it in the fridge to use over a couple weeks making simple meal prep fast and easy. Sometimes all it takes to go from blah to blimey! is a dollop or two of a really great salsa, sauce or dressing. BOOM!

Top Recipe Tips

  • If you want to add some healthy fats, you can add a chopped up avocado, a teaspoon of avocado oil, or a teaspoon of MCT oil.
  • Use anywhere you would use a salsa.
  • I usually make the salsa the night before, and allow to sit in refrigerator over night before serving.
  • Will keep for about a week in an airtight container in the fridge.
