Lacto fermented tomato Salsa

Lacto fermented tomato Salsa

Hello !! Today i made delicious Lacto fermented Salsa  with some spices 🙂   Its spring time , we looove grilling parties , especially when weather got warm. One of the main essential element to any grill is the SAUCE !  I used to use Katchup as a sauce to the grilled meat , but who knows what is the percentage of the tomato , was the tomato washed well before doing this sauce or not , ect..  I came up to an idea , why dont i make my own sauce , with my ingredients i can make a healthy , tasty and a bit spicy 🙂

We eat and drink  lot of fermented foods , such as Kefir , Joghurt and fermented Salsa is one of the easiest way to get the benefits of fermented food ( Vitamin C , fatty acid , lots of enzymes that helps in digestion process)

Thanks to the fermentation process, our salsa sauce will be bit acidic , concentrated , aromatic and full of flavors.


Lets begin:

We will need the below:

  • 2 kgs tomato cut into medium to pieces.
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • chopped fresh dill plant (optional)
  • chopped yellow and red pepper ( optional)
  • 4 tps of salt
  • 4 tps of black pepper powder
  • 1 cup of fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cleaned Medium size Jars
  • You can add hot pepper  chopped if you like


  1. Put the tomato in bowl and add salts with pepper. With a wooden spoon , stir the tomatoes well , in order to make sure that the salt and pepper are spread well. Leave it then to rest for 15 minutes.
  2. You will notice, that the tomatoes started to give juice . Thanks to the salt 🙂
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the tomatoes and stir all the mixture well.
  4. Add the mixture to the jar and make sure to give a gentle press to the tomatoes in the jar. I use the back of the spoon too press and this will give more juice.
  5. Remember not to close the jar tight. In couple of days the fermentation process will begin , so make sure to not to lock the jar hard.
  6. Put the jars in warm place to ferment and it will b ready from 4 days to 3 weeks time depending on how much acidic you want your sauce. Then you can put it in the fridge . Enjoy !
