Tomato & Coriander Salad (Salsa)

Quick & easy to make Salsa

Regular readers will notice that I have a lot of recipes with Tomatoes. True, I like tomatoes and they are good for you - a real bonus. This could be referred to as a Salsa or a Salad.

This quick side-salad is also good with cheese on crackers or toasted bread. It looks just as good as it tastes. Adjust the hot ingredients to your own liking.

5 or 6 medium tomatoes, diced [ I often use cherry tomatoes for this especially in the summer when they are just full of sweetness, about a dozen or so]
1/2 cup of roughly chopped [fresh] coriander leaves
1 Red onion, diced
Juice from 1/2 a lime
1/2 a red chilli and 1 tbs of Olive Oil - or - 1 Tablespoon of chilli dipping sauce [adjust according to how much heat you like]

Mix everything together and allow the flavours to infuse for at least 30 minutes before eating. The Chilli Dipping Sauce adds sweetness and heat (along with a touch of garlic); I tend to use it in preference to a chilli but that's a matter of taste.
