Traditional Salsa Fresca

Traditional Salsa Fresca

Serve this salsa on top of burritos, enchiladas, Mexican rice, or as a dip with tortilla chips. I also posted a recipe for Salsa Fresca with Pico de Gallo earlier. Either recipe makes a healthy condiment or snack!

Makes about 6-8 cups.


  • 2 lbs plum tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 medium white onion, minced
  • 1-2 jalapeno chili peppers, seeded, minced
  • 1/2 c fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 yellow sweet pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp dry Mexican oregano, crushed
  • 1 tsp sea salt (or to taste)


  1. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and toss well.
  2. Serve right away, or cover tightly and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
