This salsa is lovely! It tastes really fresh, zingy from the limes & a nice heat from the chilli. I make it all time, goes really well with chicken wraps & spicy sweet potato wedges. The only thing different I do is add a little salt & pepper & leave out the coriander just because both my husband & I hate coriander!

Mmm? Yes I agree Mario but I'm going to give it a try?

Surely, the combo of lime and vinegar will render this dish very acidic. Why is there no olive oil and seasoning?

Have you given this recipe a try? The volume of vinegar is little compared to the overall volume of ingredients and white wine vinegar is milder than malt vinegar. The lime gives it good flavour as well. The seasoning is added to taste, it's in the recipe feather than the list of ingredients which is quite a common thing to do I have found, annoying though it is. As for the oil, you could add a bit but I guess this is meant to be lower calorie.
