Homemade Salsa Sauce

This homemade salsa sauce is easy and delicious. The Husband and my friends loved it. I thought 2 bowls were a bit too much but they disappeared quickly.

This salsa sauce is really easy to make:

2 large and very ripe tomatoes, cut into cubes
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
1/2 a yellow onion, diced
2 stalks of Chinese coriander (or cilantro), chopped
A good squeeze of lemon juice (or lime)
1 teaspoon of good olive oil
A pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

What I did
1. Mix everything together in a bowl
2. Cling wrap the bowl and leave in the fridge for at least an hour

These chips went really well with some blue corn Tortilla chips.

No thanks at all, milka! I'd try to trim more often. Hopefully my portulacas will grow well like yours!

I'm going to make this for my Xmas dinner on this sat too! Hrm... now do you know when the tomatos are very ripe? When they are soft to touch?

Hi Wen Ai, oh.. I hope you'd like it. You know when the tomatoes are ripe when they are very red (compared to the rest) and slightly soft (not too soft). When you dice the tomatoes, throw everything into the salsa - seeds and all.

oh, just wana let you know that the salsa sauce was a hit! I made 1BIG tub and it was all gone. I added 1 extra ingredient though: white raddish because it was sitting in my fridge for 4 days and I really didn't know what to do with it, so I added into the salad. It actually turned out well! Thanks for the recipe!
