  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes quartered
  • 1/2 medium-sized yellow or white onion diced small
  • 1 serrano pepper minced (more or less to taste)
  • 1 large clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Stir together all ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Serve, or store covered in the fridge for up to 2 days.


  • If you can’t find serrano chili peppers, you can use jalapeno instead. Note that serranos are quite a bit hotter than jalapenos, so adjust accordingly.
