Restaurant Style Salsa with Fresh Tomatoes


Summer’s best fresh tomatoes makes this restaurant style salsa beyond amazing. This salsa is full of garden-fresh flavor and can be made in just minutes!  


  • 4 pounds tomatoes, tops removed
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeds and membranes removed, and roughly chopped
  • 2 chili peppers of choice, roughly chopped (you can include the seeds and membranes for hotter salsa or remove them for milder salsa)
  • 58 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 bunch of cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)


  1. Put all of the ingredients in a food processor, in two or more batches if necessary, and pulse until the salsa is the consistency of your preference.  (I told you it was easy!)


This is a large batch of salsa, and it barely fits in my 14-cup food processor.  If you have a smaller food processor, you can make this in batches and then mix it all together in a large mixing bowl when you finish.  This recipe is not appropriate for canning.  It’s enough to serve a crowd if you’re having a party or great for sharing with neighbors, friends, or family.  If you prefer less salsa, you can halve the recipe.
