14th June 2018 Fresh Tomato Salsa It is easy to make a fresh tomato salsa to enjoy as a dip, or serve alongside salads, steamed vegetables or other dishes. While fresh ripe tomatoes will taste best you could use tinned tomatoes and add a teaspoon of maple syrup for sweetness. Ingredients: 2 cups of chopped ripe tomatoes 1 small red onion, peeled and chopped ½ cup chopped cilantro 1 or 2 hot peppers, chopped (leave the seeds for more heat) 2 cloves garlic, minced 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice Unrefined sea salt to taste Optional Additions: Cucumber, bell peppers, parsley, oregano, olive oil, black pepper Directions: Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and blitz to desired consistency. OR If you like a chunky salsa, chop all ingredients finely and combine in a large bowl. I often serve this with cauliflower rice or roasted sweet potatoes. It is also a good option for the lunch box. Experiment! Use whatever fresh ingredients you have, a lemon if you have no lime, mixed peppers, different spices and fresh herbs.
