Spicy Tomato Salsa

Tomato Salsa has an endless list of recipes, each different: different tomatoes, different levels of thickness, more spicy, more sweet, more sour… the list can carry on forever. Thanks to our huge pantry of spices, we’ve developed a recipe that we believe is truly unique and also tastes the bomb. The cajun seasoning is a complex blend of onions, chillies, salt, paprika, thyme, and other spices that pair extremely well with tomatoes and mexican cuisine.

Fattoush – bursting with lime, the lebanese salad we all love
