I created this easy tomato salsa recipe one day when I had very limited time. It takes around 2 minutes to make, and because the ingredients are fresh and not processed, it’s low in calories.
I use a Ninja Master Prep Chopper which helps with my preparation speed.
I’m not entirely sure it’s true salsa, since I made the recipe up myself. Let’s just say it’s salsa inspired. I love to whip it up because it’s done in about 2 minutes (fantastic if you’re in a rush) and people are usually impressed that you’ve gone to the effort of making it yourself. In fact, they’re always much more impressed than they should be, they just don’t realise how easy peasy it is to make!
Easy Tomato Salsa Recipe:
- 2 tomatoes
- 1/4 of a cucumber
- 1/2 a medium white onion
- 1 red pepper
- 1 tsp of chilli oil
This is probably the easiest dip you’ll ever make. I have a Ninja vegetable chopper and I probably owe the speediness of the recipe to this.
Cut the tomatoes into quarters, slice the cucumber, pepper and onion and throw everything into the veg chopper. Blitz it for about 30 seconds, give the chamber a shake and blitz for a few more seconds. Everything will be finely chopped and hopefully mixed well.
Because I’m a massive time cheat and leave the cucumber seeds in, the mix is pretty wet. Strain the salsa dip mix in a sieve then transfer into a bowl.
Add the tsp of chilli oil into the bowl and stir in.
And that’s it!
I try not to make it too spicy for the kids, but if you like things extra fiery, you can add another tsp of chilli oil and a pinch of chilli powder.
I would expect any dip leftover would keep for a couple of days in the fridge, but it’s always eaten too quickly in our house for us to find out!
This recipe also features on this post, if need some ideas on what to serve your salsa dip with.
