Fresh Tomato Salsa

  • Author: Aggie Goodman


  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh, ripe tomatoes, cut into large pieces
  • 1 small onion, cut into large pieces
  • 1 or 2 jalapeños, seeded and cut in large pieces (1 or 2 jalapeños depends on your desired heat level)
  • 2 limes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 handful (1 cup) fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Coarse salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste


  1. Before adding the tomatoes to the food processor, gently squeeze out juices (this will avoid salsa becoming to watery). Cut the onions into large pieces.
  2. Add the tomatoes to the KitchenAid® 14-Cup Food Processor along with onion, jalapeño, juice of two limes, olive oil and fresh cilantro. Season the batch of tomatoes, onions and jalapeños with cumin, a big pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Process salsa by hitting the Pulse button of the KitchenAid® Food Processor 15-20 times, until it is at the consistency you are looking for.
  4. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust if necessary.
  5. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days for best flavor.
