  • 1 x 400g 14oz can chopped tomatoes (drain the tomatoes if you want a thicker salsa)
  • 1 red onion finely chopped
  • small handful fresh coriander/cilantro to taste
  • 2 fresh Jalapeños seeds removed (optional)
  • 2 garlic cloves sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • pinch of sugar optional
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • lemon/lime juice to taste


  • Place all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the ingredients have just been broken down. Take care not to blend too much as the salsa will lose all its texture.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl and serve.
  • This salsa will keep for up to 10 days in a sealed container in the fridge.
