Salsa cruda is a fresh tomato salsa, using the best ripe tomatoes of the season. Find multi-colored heirloom tomatoes for a vibrant, confetti-like look!


  • 1 pound mixed heirloom tomatoes
  • ½ small red onion
  • 1 cob corn
  • ½ jalapeño pepper
  • ½ cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 lime (3 tablespoons fresh lime juice)
  • A few pinches kosher salt


  1. Core, de-seed and finely dice the tomatoes. Mince the onion. Cut the corn from the cob. Cut the jalapeño pepper in half and remove and discard the ribs and seeds, taking care to wash your hands when finished. Finely dice one half of the pepper (for a medium salsa); reserve the other half for future use. Chop the cilantro.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and add the juice of one lime and a few pinches kosher salt.
