Fresh cilantro lime salsa

This fresh salsa is absolutely the best! Cilantro and fresh lime juice add so much flavor. Pair it with good corn chips and dig in! My family loves when I make it! If there are leftovers I store them the refrigerator for a couple of days.

Make sure to choose firmer tomatoes and cucumbers for a crunchier salsa. For this recipe I use my veggie chopper. I use this to chop veggies, hardboiled eggs, strawberries, potatoes and more.

Now lets make some salsa!

Prep time



Delicious fresh salsa and so easy to make!


  • 1 large firm English cucumber

  • 3 large tomatoes( I use tomatoes on a vine)

  • 2 green bell peppers

  • 1 small red or Vidalia onion

  • 3 limes

  • small bunch of fresh cilantro ( 1/4 cup chopped)

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt (adjust to salt)

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper (adjust to taste)

  • 1/4 cup of olive oil (I use the kind that is used for sauteing, but extra virgin or vegetable oil will work))


  • Chop the onion and add it to the large bowl that you will be using for mixing your salsa..
  • Juice limes and pour freshly squeezed juice over the onion. This improves flavor quite a bit, getting rid of strong “oniony” taste and adds crunch.
  • If you have a chopper: slice veggies into thick slices so they can fit into the chopper opening. Chop cucumber, tomatoes, bell pepper and add to the bowl with onion and lime juice.
  • If you do not have a chopper, cut veggies using a knife into similar sized small cubes.
  • Chop cilantro greens and add to the veggie mix.
  • Sprinkle salsa with salt and pepper, add olive oil, mix well and serve with you favorite corn chips!


  • I refrigerate salsa for up to three days and stir before serving leftovers.
  • Add some extra lime juice to up the flavor.
  • Link to the veggie chopper similar to mine at the end of this post.
