This was lovely. I used the salsa recipe and served on bruschetta with melted mozzarella. Looks beautiful.

Does anyone know if the salsa freezes well? Thanks.

I made the salsa with the addition of some chopped mint leaves and served it alongside slices of halloumi dusted with seasoned flour and fried in a little sunflower oil. This made a lovely starter. I would say that served in this way is only enough for 6. But really tasty and will make it again. Delish.

Have to say, really good. Doing burgers on Sunday as part of BBQ, needed a salsa in a hurry and had a couple of tomatoes in the fridge. I halved the receipe, I didn't have sundried tomato paste so I used a squeeze of tomato puree and added a pince of suger to combat any sharpness. My husband wants to know when can we have burgers again.. reaaly good!

Quick and easy, I added some homemade morrocan tomato jam and forgot to add the lime. I served as part of a carpet picnic and it went down well.

Yummy! I added some mint and as I didn't have sun dried tomato paste I whizzed a couple of sun dried tomatoes and added them into the mixture. I served this with avocado slices alternating with mozzarella slices and some home baked chorizo fociaccia. Made it last weekend for friends and am making it again tonight for other friends. I don't think the quantities are enough for 8.
