  • Author: Mely Martinez
  • Prep Time: 5
  • Total Time: 5
  • Yield: 1 1x


  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes*
  • 1 Tablespoon of bird peppers**
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • Salt to taste
  • A few cilantro leaves (optional)


  1. Crush the pepper in you stone mortar (or blender) first. This salsa has a coarse, chunky texture.
  2. Add the garlic and grind with the mortar stone.
  3. Add the tomatoes little bit little, and continue grinding. If needed, add a couple of tablespoons of water.
  4. Season with salt and serve in a bowl. Enjoy! It’s really easy!
  5. This salsa lasts just one day fresh in the fridge.


  • * Try to find small garden cherry tomatoes, those very small-multicolored tomatoes. If you can’t find any, then use regular cherry tomatoes. Grape tomatoes have a very hard skin and aren’t as sweet as cherry tomatoes.
  • ** You can substitute bird peppers with any other green pepper like Serrano or jalapeño. If using Serrano or jalapeño, dice them very finely.
