  • 1 tomatillo
  • 1 roma tomato (substitute any medium sized tomato)
  • 2 basil leaves
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 6 mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoons cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar


  • Place ingredients in a food processor and pulse several time until ingredients are combined but still a LITTLE chunky.
  • Can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for about 1 week.


  1. If you'd like less heat in the salsa, remove the seeds from the jalapeno. For more heat add another jalapeno or a Thai chili;
  2. Use a food processor for the best results - a blender will give it too much of a pureed consistency;
  3. Add additional salt to taste if desired;
  4. If the salsa is too thick, thin it with a couple tablespoons of water;
  5. The recipe can easily be doubled or tripled;
  6. You can freeze salsa in an airtight container or a freezer bag for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight and enjoy!
