    Ingredients in food processor
  • Pulse until chunky salsa is formed. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, then transfer salsa to bowl or airtight container with lid. Serve immediately or refrigerate and serve chilled.

  • For an even lower-carb salsa, omit the sweet onions.
  • If you don't own a food processor, you can make this salsa by hand. All you have to do is chop everything up until you've got your desired salsa consistency! If you like a really liquidy salsa, stir in the liquid from the canned tomatoes before serving.
  • I highly recommend letting the salsa chill before serving. As it sits, the flavors really develop and deepen. You'll have a much more flavorful salsa after it chills for 1-2 hours, as opposed to serving it as soon as you've made it.
