We grow lots of cherry tomatoes and because they are sweet, they make a great salsa. I use a canning process to jar them to preserve this so that I can have some throughout the year. I put them in 250 ml or 1 cup jars. It will keep in the fridge for 2 weeks easy without canning. The recipe is without the canning process.


  • 4 cups of chopped cherry tomatoes
  • 1 large spanish onion chopped
  • 2 cherry bomb peppers minced
  • 1 large jalapeño minced
  • 1 tbsp of salt
  • 1 tbsp of pepper
  • 1 tbsp of white sugar
  • 1/2 cup of fresh chopped cilantro


  1. In a large bowl put all ingredients together and cover for 3 hours so all the flavours can marry. Adjust your salt to your taste.

As I mentioned you can use your favourite canning process to preserve these. If you are having a party, 4 cups spread out is not that much (trust me). There is no end on how you can change up this recipe. I usually make one batch really spicy and one batch not so much. When ready to serve I’ve added cooked corn kernels and black beans and it becomes one heck of a dip. You can add, at that time a little sour cream to it and it becomes another type of dip. I’ve used it in tacos, tortillas, and thrown a jar in for different tex/mex recipes I’ve done. There is no limit to the changes you can do and what you use this for. The only limit is your imagination. So enjoy it and make it your own. Let me know what you come up with.
