salsa recipe

I've always been a little bit obsessed with Mexico, and I was lucky enough to visit Playa Del Carmen in January. I fell completely in love and I'm planning on going back with my husband, mum and sisters next year and I absolutely cannot wait! In the meantime, I've been obsessed with learning Spanish, finding out more about Mexican history and culture and cooking all the things I ate whilst I was there. I found the Mexico in my Kitchen blog, and have been reading it and cooking from it since I got back. One of the first things I made was Mely's salsa, and it is amazing. I'd tried to make salsa at home with various recipes before, and I was never that impressed but this one was seriously so good and I'd urge you to try it for yourself!

Since making Mely's version, I've changed the recipe somewhat and below is my favourite way to make it!

Homemade Salsa

(Recipe adapted from Mexico in my Kitchen)


200g cherry tomatoes
1 jalapeño
1 tbsp chopped white onion
½ garlic clove
1 tbsp chopped coriander
1 tbsp lime juice


  • Remove stalks from tomatoes
  • Put jalapeño in a pan of water and bring to the boil.
  • After 2 minutes, carefully add the cherry tomatoes to the pan. The tomatoes should drop to the bottom and then float to the top when they're cooked, or just simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Drain tomatoes and jalapeño, and carefully (it's hot!) remove jalapeño stalk and seeds
  • Add all ingredients to blender, and blend until combined and the texture is how you like it. I prefer a chunky salsa, but my husband will only eat smooth!
