2.  Salsa

Unless you live near an ethnic supermarket that sells fresh salsa, all you can do is buy the stuff in the jars, but if you are a true salsa aficionado, you know that junk in the jar is nothing like real, fresh salsa.

Salsa might sound like a complicated Mexican side dish, but it’s only 5 ingredients and takes just a few minutes to make.


  • 5 Medium sized organic tomatoes (any variety you like)
  • 1 Medium sized organic white onion
  • 1 Medium sized organic jalapeno pepper, finely chopped (more if you like it hot, less if you don’t)
  • 1 Large organic garlic clove, finely chopped
  • Juice from ½ an organic lime


Chop the tomato and onion into quarter inch diced pieces. Stir all ingredients together in a glass bowl.  You’re done! You can add salt and pepper to taste. We left out cilantro because it seems to be a bit of a love it or hate it ingredient. If you love it, add about 3 tablespoons of freshly chopped, organic cilantro leaves.

By the way, if you like guacamole, you can add about 3 ripe avocados to this mix for some super guacamole. Pour the juice from the other half of that lime on top to keep it from turning brown.
