Fresh and Fabulous

Y’all know I choose my Mexican restaurants by how good their chips and salsa are (if that’s wrong, I don’t want to be right). The whole mood of the meal is going to be set by how fresh and fabulous that salsa is! And speaking of fresh and fabulous, this Roasted Tomato Salsa is everything a restaurant-style salsa should be. It’s easy and delicious and once you make it at home, you won’t need to go out. Especially if you have a great margarita recipe to go with it! 😜

This salsa recipe was actually inspired by our favorite restaurant, MINA (formerly known as Si Señor), in Punta Mita, Mexico. When we travel to Punta Mita each year, we eat lunch almost every day at MINA because the food and margaritas are the best we’ve ever had. They make their roasted tomato salsa table-side and it’s fantastic. I’ve taken close notes over the years and have finally perfected the recipe here at home so we can enjoy it year round.

There is truly nothing complicated about a good salsa. Take fresh, simple ingredients and put them together in the right quantities and you’ve got a winner. For this recipe, we roast vine-ripened tomatoes, crisp red onion, plenty of garlic and some jalapeños for a little heat, then add lime juice and a bit of cilantro and let the dipping begin! I can’t wait to share this deliciousness with you!

How to Make Roasted Tomato Salsa

First, preheat the broiler. Then line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Place tomatoes, jalapeño peppers and red onion, cut side down, on the prepared baking sheet. Arrange the garlic in various spots between the other items on the baking sheet. Drizzle everything evenly with the olive oil and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt.

Place baking sheet under the broiler and cook until tomatoes, jalapeños, onion and garlic have slightly blackened, about 20 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through the baking time. Remove from broiler and let sit until cool enough to handle, about 5 minutes.

Transfer tomatoes, jalapeño, onion and garlic to a blender or food processor fitted with a steel blade. Pulse until mixture is barely chopped with thick chunks. Transfer to a medium bowl. Stir in the cilantro and lime juice.
