Blender Salsa – a delicious blender salsa recipe that could not be more easy! Just dump and go! Perfect for garden tomatoes!


  • 56 roma tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 jalapeño, halved*
  • Approx. 1/4 cup red onion
  • Approx. 1/4 cup white onion
  • 1/4 cup tightly packed cilantro 
  • 2 large garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons oregano leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive or avocado oil
  • 1 lime, juiced


  1. Combine ingredients in blender and pulse a few times until you have reaches your desired consistency. You may want to stop a few times and use a spoon to mix things together so the bottom doesn’t get overly blended while the top isn’t. 
  2. Once you have reached your desired consistency, taste and add any additional lime juice, salt or other ingredients to reach your desired flavor.
  3. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5-7 days.


  • *Jalapeno: use as much or as little jalapeño as you want. I remove the membrane and seeds and then only used halve a jalapeño and it was plenty spicy. You can omit the jalapeño completely or you can do a whole jalapeño with seeds and membrane intact for a super spicy batch. 
  • Storage: store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days in an airtight container.
  • Freeze: you can also freeze salsa in a freezer-safe jar or silicone storage bag. If freeze in a glass container make sure you leave a little extra room to allow for expansion during the freezing process.
  • Watery: tomatoes naturally have water in them – if the water bothers you simply pour off some of the water.
  • Fresh tomato alternative: if you do not have fresh Roma tomatoes then you can use a 20oz can fire roasted tomatoes – the texture will definitely be different though.
  • Other tomatoes: if you have other tomatoes you want to use instead of Roma tomatoes you certainly can, but roma tomatoes have the least amount of naturally occurring water in them so other tomatoes will result in a more watery salsa.
