Easy Salsa Recipe and
A Fermented Tomato Salsa Recipe

An easy salsa recipe can be a traditional tomato salsa recipe that has been fermented.  This is a new and exciting way to experience a salsa recipe.

And a tomatillo salsa recipe can be a refreshing change from the more traditional tomato salsa recipe.  A tomatillo salsa is a green salsa recipe that uses the tomatillo as the main ingredient instead of tomatoes.

Just remember an easy salsa recipe will only require a few fresh ingredients when you are making a fermented salsa recipe or a more traditional salsa recipe.

Fermented Tomato Salsa Recipe


  • 3 to 4 cups Ripe Organic Tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1 Onion (diced)
  • 1 Bell Pepper (chopped)
  • 1 Garlic Clove (chopped)
  • 1 Bunch Cilantro (rough chopped)
  • Cumin or Other Spices (to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp. of Sea Salt


  1. Add ingredients to a bowl and massage salt into ingredients.  Then press ingredients into a glass jar to release juices and get rid of any air pockets.
  2. Fill glass jar until 1 inch from the top and add a weight of choice (clean rock, etc.) so that ingredients stay covered with juices.
  3. Put on a lid and ferment for 3 days on your kitchen counter or a room temperature shelf.  You can then store your fermented salsa in the refrigerator for a few months.

This is my new and favorite way to eat salsa - the fermented way!

The hard part of this recipe will be waiting to eat your salsa.  The best part, is that a fermented salsa recipe will have a longer shelf life than fresh salsa.

You'll get a bunch of probiotics along with your easy salsa recipe. 

You can also make a lacto-fermented tomato salsa recipe using whey which cuts down a little on the amount of salt used.

This also looks like it would be a good recipe to make a fermented salsa recipe.

A Tomatillo Salsa Recipe

  • A tomatillo salsa recipe is a green salsa recipe that is very common in Mexico.
  • This green salsa recipe uses the tomatillo fruit instead of tomatoes.
  • Tomatillos have a very distinct tart flavor. 
  • Tomatillos can be used raw or cooked in a tomatillo salsa recipe.

Even though this is a somewhat cooked green salsa recipe, I think this easy salsa recipe is outstanding.

What is a Tomatillo?

A tomatillo is sometimes called a green Mexican tomato.  It looks just like a small green tomato and comes with a paper-like husk which is inedible.  Like the tomato, this fruit is also a member of the nightshade family.  Tomatillos are related to tomatoes as well as the Cape Gooseberry.

Usually, tomatillos are used in their green or unripe state which gives a green salsa recipe a tart citrus flavor  However, when a tomatillo ripens it can be yellow to purple in color and will have a sweeter taste.

Look for tomatillos that are surrounded by a light brown and fresh looking husk which indicates freshness.

Colorful Easy Salsa Recipe


  • A Variety of Tomatoes (cut in half or quartered)
  • Sweet Peppers (a few tiny peppers or 1 large)
  • 1 Slice of Onion
  • Pinch of Cumin
  • Optional:  Fresh Jalapeno or Pickled Jalapeno (to taste)


Use a small food processor to blend your salsa.  Be sure to add the tomatoes in last and pulse to make a chunky tomato salsa recipe.

This is a different type of easy salsa recipe.  Sweet peppers are added for a different depth of flavor and extra color to make this easy salsa recipe more interesting.  Also, a variety of tomatoes can be used like cherry tomatoes, yellow tomatoes, and orange tomatoes.

If you want a more rich tasting tomato salsa recipe use vine-ripened tomatoes instead of the commercial bland type of tomato.  You will even find heirloom tomatoes which can be greenish to purple in color - to increase the depth of flavor of your easy salsa recipes.

You will find a great variety of tomatoes at most grocery stores and farmer's markets these days.  Please stay away from tomatoes that are not organic!
