This Keto Salsa is a tasty dip for those who follow a keto diet! Simple to whip up, this keto recipe takes just 10 minutes to prepare and is gluten-free, refined sugar-free, nut-free, paleo, Whole30-compliant, AND vegan!


  • 34 (~330g) medium tomatoes, chopped
  • Juice from ¾ of medium lime
  • ½ (~30g) small red onion, finely diced
  • 1 (~3g) large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 (~14g) medium red chili, de-seeded and finely diced
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp flakey sea salt, or to taste
  • ¼ tsp pepper, or to taste


  1. To a mixing bowl, add all ingredients and mix until well-combined. Taste mixture and adjust seasoning to your preferences.

Recipe Notes:

Fresh Tomato Substitution: If fresh tomatoes are not in-season or you do not have access to them, you can use canned tomatoes in this recipe. About half to 2/3 of a can should be enough for this recipe. Note that this substitution will alter the final carb content and nutrition information.

Fresh Lime Juice Substitution: If you’d like to swap in store-bought lime juice for fresh lime juice, I recommend starting with 1 1/2 tablespoons of lime juice and going from there, depending on taste. Additionally, you can sub in fresh or store-bought lemon juice for lime juice at a 1:1 ratio.

To Lessen Or Eliminate The Spiciness: Decrease or altogether omit the chili to yield a mild salsa. Note that this substitution will alter the final carb content and nutrition information.

Storage: Store salsa in the refrigerator in an airtight glass jar or container for up to 4 days.
