Best Sweet Onion Salsa

I LOVE salsa. But it has to be good, fresh salsa. This is by far the best Sweet Onion Salsa Recipe I have ever made.

I love sweet salsa but don’t love the mango or the peach kind. I also don’t like it spicy. Not a huge fan of canned salsa either. 

Having tried every kind and it just doesn’t taste fresh enough for me. I know…I know…picky picky picky!  

Well, here I have for you a perfect sweet onion salsa with doTERRA lime and cilantro essential oils. I bring it to ever potluck and everyone always asks for the recipe.  

The essential oils give it a little extra zing to it and takes it up a notch. So I am sharing it with you so you can be the salsa champ at every family gathering.

You’re welcome.

It is total cost effective too!

It costs about $1.50 and 5 minutes. Win and win!

Plus the entire 16 ounces is 160 calories or 5 calories per tablespoon so it is a great way to add flavor without packing on the calories.

Watch how I make it with my lovely assistant. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of diced tomatoes (undrained) or 1 1/2 cups of fresh tomatoes
  • 1/3 bunch of cilantro (or about a handful)
  • 1/4 of a sweet onion (or 1/2 cup diced)
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon agave nectar, real maple syrup or sugar (or I use 1 teaspoon of Truvia for a no-sugar option)
  • 1/2 juice of a lime or 1 1/2 tablespoons of lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon of minced garlic or one clove
  • 1/4 heaping teaspoon of cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 jalapeño slice 
  • 1 drop of doTERRA lime essential oil
  • 1 drop of doTERRA cilantro essential oil

How To Make the Best Sweet Onion Salsa

Step 1

Measure out all the ingredients except for the tomatoes directly into the food processor.

Blend until everything is chopped up.

Step 2

Next, I add the can of tomatoes and pulse about 5-6 times in order to cut them down a bit. 

However, if you don’t like chunky salsa blend away.

I like it slightly chunky so I pulse just a few times…

Add in 1 drop each of doTERRA lime and cilantro essential oils.

Stir and taste.

Add more of one or the other to make it to your liking. 

Then I just store it in an airtight plastic container in the fridge and it is gone in 2 days flat. 

It is so good and my whole family gobbles it right up.

  1. I’m so happy to find this recipe! I moved to California a year ago and miss Garden Fresh Gourmet Salsa. I can’t tell you how many salsas I’ve tried here but haven’t found one that said YUM.
