From Solo Lisa's Kitchen: Easy Summertime Salsa

One of the things I've been making a lot of this summer is fresh salsa. Not only is it nutritious and delicious, it's super easy and always feels like such a treat compared to its store-bought counterpart. I like serving it with chips and chilled white wine for some impromptu entertaining, or eating it with scrambled eggs and warm corn tortillas for a quick weekday dinner. With the last long weekend of the summer approaching, I thought I might share this simple recipe in case you were looking to add something extra to your backyard barbecue menu. Enjoy!


  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2 or 3 tomatoes on the vine, diced
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • Cilantro, chopped, to taste
  • 1 tbsp Cholula hot sauce
  • Kosher salt, to taste

Combine ingredients in one bowl and mix well. Chill before serving if desired. When serving, stir occasionally with a spoon so the hot sauce and lime juice at the bottom of the bowl are redistributed throughout the salsa.


  1. Some quinoa and olive oil in there would be yummy too!

  2. now i just need some fresh cubed avocado and some grilled chicken or beef.
