Roasted Tomato Salsa

Salsa is one of the most popular condiments in the United States, yet most people are still buying theirs from the grocery store!  To stop this madness, I have provided this recipe for you.  Feel free to make measurement adjustments as needed.


  • 3 Tbsp. onion, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
  • Juice from ½ lime
  • 2-4 small tomatoes, whole
  • 1-2 tsp. honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. Slice a small incision on top of all tomatoes
  3. Place tomatoes on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet
  4. Bake tomatoes until skin is blistered or blackened (10-15 minutes)
    1. This step can also be accomplished by heating the tomatoes over an open flame; I do not have the means to do this in my kitchen
  5. Once tomatoes are blackened, remove from heat and let rest for 3-5 minutes
  6. Remove seeds (if desired) and chop tomatoes
  7. Combine all ingredients in a mortar to grind together
  8. Serve and enjoy
