Orange-Kissed Tomato Salsa Recipe

Orange-Kissed Tomato Salsa Recipe

This no-cook salsa is delicious with quesadillas and many other Latin dishes. It's also easy for kids to make themselves.


  • 3 medium-size Roma tomatoes
  • 1/2 medium-size red onion
  • 1/4 cup cilantro or parsley leaves
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Using a small knife, halve each tomato. Cut away the stem area, then cut the two halves in half. Over the sink or a small bowl, squeeze the tomato pieces as you would a sponge to force out the seeds and water. Use a knife or hand-powered food chopper to dice the tomatoes. Transfer the fruit to a medium-size bowl.
  2. Dice the red onion and add it to the bowl. Finely chop the cilantro or parsley and add it to the bowl as well. Note: If you're using a food chopper, the onion and herbs can be chopped together.
  3. Stir in the orange juice, sugar, and salt and combine them well. Cover and refrigerate the salsa for 1 hour to allow the flavors to mingle. Makes 2-1/2 cups.
