Grilled Tomato Salsa: Fresh & Easy

Submitted by JDiazAsper on 09/04/2010 – 11:00 am2 Comments

I did not grow up with salsa (not in Cuban cuisine, much to the surprise of many of my American friends) and it took me a while to find a simple way to make it that both kids and adults like.

I like to grill the tomatoes to add smokey flavor. I use a lot of lime to add flavor without too much spiciness. I make a lot of salsa at one time because it goes fast and tastes even better in a few days. If you like spicier salsa, add a chopped jalapeno to this recipe. I tend to fry fresh chips to dip in my fresh salsa.


  • 4 tomatoes grilled until blackened
  • 2 limes squeezed
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • A bunch of cilantro chopped finely
  • 1 tablespoon salt


  1. Put chopped garlic and onions in a bowl
  2. Puree grilled tomato with salt in a food processor
  3. Put grilled tomato and lime juice in the bowl
  4. Sprinkle the cilantro on top and toss gently

This is a crowd favorite and pretty quick. Goes great with Sangria or cebreza!

    I like it! The toughest part is grilling the tomato, and I might try that on my indoor grill (shhh don’t tell the barbecue lovers)

    Looks good. I love fresh salsa. I never grilled the tomatoes but have made roasted tomato salsa. It’s all good because is one of the best foods around!
