Cilantro and Garlic Salsa

If you like cilantro and garlic, this is the salsa for you. It’s so good that you may want to forget the tortilla chips and just use a spoon.

This no fuss salsa is ready at the push of a finger…

Just add all ingredients to a blender and blend away.


I especially like this salsa because it’s slightly tart from the lime juice, spicy from the jalapenos, and the overall taste is very fresh from the cilantro, garlic and Roma tomatoes.

It tastes best when there’s just enough seasoned salt added which really brings out the flavor.

This salsa is great for dipping because it’s a little on the thick side and has a nice texture to it.

Salsa comes in really handy when:

  • Guests are coming over and you need a quick and easy appetizer for them (and you) to snack on;
  • Plain old scrambled eggs need something to spice them up;
  • You’re at home with your fuzzy slippers on and tortilla chips are calling your name all the way from the pantry;
  • There’s leftover sour cream in the fridge…just mix in this salsa for a quick dip;
  • Marinating meat;
  • Having Mexican food for breakfast, lunch or dinner; and
  • You want to give someone a just-because-gift…put the salsa in a mason jar and add a ribbon.

So let’s check out the ingredients.

Cilantro, garlic, Roma tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, onion (white or yellow), a lime (juiced) and seasoned salt

printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.
