“We loved this recipe! My husband adored it and almost single-handedly ate the entire batch (though, I must admit, I also did some damage). We know our salsa living in the Southwest and found this one to be great.”

“It is good without onion, too, if you have an allergy or aversion (we made it a second time without onions for a sister who hates onions). Good regular tomatoes can be used in place of the roma at the end, but may be slightly juicier.”

“My husband and his whole family who loves eating at Chili’s said this is the perfect copycat of Chili’s salsa! They all LOVED it so much that the salsa was GONE already in one day. They all gave rate of 10!”


A tomato is actually a fruit, not a vegetable. Originating in South America, the tomato was spread around the world following the Spanish colonization of the Americas, and its many varieties are now widely grown, often in greenhouses in cooler climates.

One of the most well known tomato eating benefit is its Lycopene content.

Lycopene is a vital anti-oxidant that helps in the fight against cancerous cell formation as well as other kinds of health complications and diseases.

Free radicals in the body can be flushed out with high levels of Lycopene, and the tomato is so amply loaded with this vital anti-oxidant that it actually derives its rich redness from the nutrient.

Lycopene is not a naturally produced element within the body and the human body requires sources of Lycopene in order to make use of this powerful anti-oxidant.

While other fruits and vegetables do contain this necessary health ingredient, no other fruit or vegetable has the high concentration of Lycopene that the tomato takes pride in.

  1. I’d like to see restaurants supplying healthier condiments. BBQ sauce doesn’t have to be made with high-fructose corn syrup!

  2. 4 stars
    I love salsa and make it every year from my garden. I would like to see restaurants offer lots of the fabulous juices you make! LOL! Seriously, I would order fries out if anyone offered a healthier choice. Thanks!

  3. This salsa sounds so delicious! Can’t wait to try it out!

    I’m going to have to agree with the two previous posters who said “cole slaw” as a side dish I’d like to see made healthier! I love KFC’s cole slaw, but I’m sure it must be pretty high in calories.
