  • 3 cups chopped tomatoes about 4-5 ripe tomatoes, I like to use cherry tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup green onions finely diced
  • 1 jalapeño seeds removed and diced
  • 1 tablespoon red chili seeds removed and diced - optional, for extra spiciness
  • 1 cup sweet corn optional, but delicious! If frozen then thaw, if canned then drain
  • 1 lime zested and juiced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced - optional
  • 1/4 cup cilantro finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper or to taste


  • Prepare all the ingredients, clean and chop the tomatoes in small pieces.
  • In a medium serving bowl, add all the ingredients and gently stir until combined.
  • Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with lime on the side and tortilla chips.
