I spent my holiday this year in hot Croatia. I had the opportunity not only to rest but also to cook a little. As I had access to a kitchen, I made dishes for lunch as well as dinner quite often. My menu included fresh fish, seafood and a lot of vegetables. One of the dishes that I made during my holiday cooking was tomato salsa. I make this tomato salsa very often, but interestingly, I have not yet shared its recipe with you on the blog, so here it goes – below you will find a recipe for tomato salsa.
Tomato salsa can be served as an addition to meat dishes. It goes very well especially with a grilled meat, let it be chicken, pork or sausage. When I serve tomato salsa for dinner, apart from meat, I also like to serve rice or couscous with it. I recommend you this recipe for simple tomato salsa, be sure to try it 🙂
Ingredients for tomato salsa.
- 4 big tomatoes
- 15 big green olives
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon of dry or fresh chili pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/6 teaspoon of black pepper
- 1/2 big red onion

How to make tomato salsa.
Wash the tomatoes, dry them and then cut them into medium-sized cubes. Put them into a bowl and add the mashed garlic, diced onion and finely chopped olives. Combine the lemon juice with salt, pepper, olive oil and finely chopped chili in a cup. Pour the sauce from the cup into the vegetables in the bowl and mix it thoroughly.
Good to know when making tomato salsa.
I do not remove the peel or the seeds from the tomatoes. If you decide to remove the skin, put the tomatoes in boiling water for a few seconds first. The peel from such tomatoes will come off very quickly and efficiently.
