You will love this fermented salsa. This fermented salsa is good for digestion (free of gluten, dairy, eggs and nuts), packed with nutrients and live enzymes. You can make this salsa all year round, but I would try it with tomatoes harvested in their peak season. Once you try this salsa with fresh sliced avocado, you will feel how nature gifted us with foods so tasty and nutritious.


  • 6 Ripe tomatoes

  • 1 Onion

  • 1 Big bunch fresh coriander

  • 2 Fresh Green chillies

  • 2 Cloves of garlic

  • 1 Lime (juice)

  • Sea salt

  • Extra virgin olive oil to drizzle


  • Get all the ingredientes washed and near your work space.
  • Halve the tomatoes, chop the flesh, and chop them into a large bowl in little chunks.
  • Dice the onion, and add them to the large bowl with the tomatoes. I like to see chunks of onion in the salsa.
  • If you would like, you can try to blend half of the onion, and keep just the other half in little chunks.
  • Put fresh chillies, garlic cloves, lime juice in the food processor.
  • Pulse the food processor until all the ingredients are evenly mixed, but not to turn it into a smooth blend. It should resemble a thick sauce with small chunky bits insides.
  • Add the mixture from the food processor, chopped coriander and sea salt into the large bowl where the chopped tomatoes and onions are stored. Combine all ingredients well.
  • Make sure your glass jar is cleaned with warm soapy water before you make this step. Fill the salsa in glass jar. Push down the salsa to be sure that all the chunks are suberged under the juice and to release all air. Fill it almost till the top and seal it.
  • You can leave in the fridge (slow fermentation) or a dark spot away from heat for up to 3 days to ferment and combine flavours for a superior taste and flavour. Don’t forget to drizzle with olive oil before you serve.


  • You are the chef in your own kitchen. So you can blend, mix smash or pulverize to your desired consistency this salsa.
  • If you are thinking of serving this salsa to children or you are sensitive to spicy, remove the seeds from chillies. If you really enjoy some spicy salsa, consider increasing the quantity of chillies.
