I am such a huge fan of homemade salsa that I find it very hard to eat store bought anymore.  I also love heirloom tomatoes.  I don't know if it's just the beautiful colors or the taste, or both, but I buy them as often as I can, from cherry tomato size  to regular size.

Heirloom Tomato Salsa
Here is the recipe for my Cherry Heirloom Tomato Salsa.


  • 1 large punnet of cherry heirloom tomatoes (quartered)
  • 1/2 cup red onion (chopped)
  • 2 serrano chiles (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 lime (freshly squeezed)
  • 1/2 cup cilantro (roughly chopped)
  • freshly cracked pepper
  • 1 big pinch of truffle salt.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and gently combine.  Serve with Tostitos multi-grain scoops.

I make this same recipe, minus the chiles, and serve it as a side dish! My daughter gets a kick out of all the different colors that heirloom tomatoes come in.

I LOVE heirloom salad and cannot wait until the Farmer’s Market has more of them over the coming weeks!

I could eat heirloom tomatoes every day.  I'm a bit of a tomato lover :).   It's the added truffle salt and chiles that definitely kick it up a notch.  Love it.  My kids still won't eat it though, they take one look at a tomato ….

I absolutely love tomatoes.  I don't know what it is about those heirloom ones though, but I'm a little addicted to them.
