  • A handful of cherry tomatoes or large chopped tomatoes
  • Half a red onion finely chopped
  • Half a teaspoon of minced garlic
  • One green chilli - with or without seeds depending on taste
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • A handful of coriander chopped
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Teaspoon of sugar


    1. For coarse salsa use a pestle and mortar for fine salsa use a food processor - but this is quite a loose salsa I think pestle and mortar works best
    2. If using the food processor, simply put all ingredients in and whizz
    3. If using pestle and mortar, simply add all the ingredients and crush. Taste and add more lime, sugar, salt or pepper as desired
    4. Chill in the fridge until using, this salsa gets better the longer it is left.
