Salsa is a wonderful Paleo-friendly condiment for just about everything: it’s good on salads, burgers, or grilled meat, or just as a dipping sauce for whatever finger-friendly vegetables you like. And the perfect salsa-making season is when tomatoes are at their cheapest and most delicious: in other words, now.


  • 2 lbs. Roma tomatoes;
  • 1 jalapeño pepper;
  • 1 large white onion, sliced;
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced;
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro;
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice;
  • ¼ tsp. cumin;
  • ½ tsp. oregano;
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat your grill to a medium-high heat.
  • Place the tomatoes, onion, jalapeño, and garlic in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  • Grill the vegetables until blackened on all sides, 10 to 15 minutes per side.
  • Transfer the cooked vegetables to a food processor and pulse until coarsely pureed.
  • Transfer the salsa to a bowl. Add the cumin, the lime juice, the oregano, the cilantro, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Give everything a good stir.
  • Refrigerate or serve warm right away.
