Fresh and crunchy salsa anytime, anyday. - Narcissism is Necessary

Fresh and crunchy salsa anytime, anyday.

This salsa recipe is so simple and delicious that I could just eat it on its own, like a salad :D It’s very good with fajitas or eaten as bruschettas. There’s no fancing cooking technique involved, not even cooking itself. All you need is a reliable knife to chop up all the vegetables!

    The ingredients:

  • 5 medium sized tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 80-100 grams of coriander, roughly chopped
  • 2 medium sized red onions, finely chopped
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 3/4 tablespoon of coarse salt

# – The fresh ingredients.

# – Throw the roughly chopped coriander into a mixing bowl.

# – Then throw in the tomatoes.

# – Next in, the finely chopped red onions.

# – Sprinkle the coarse salt all over. Don’t be too heavy handed with salt, do taste as you go :)

# – And top it all off with the juice of 1 lemon.

# – Lastly, mix it all up!! Gorgeous, gorgeous colours!

# – Put in on a fajita….

# – Or even eat it as a salad on the side.

Now, this is a truly healthy salad and that’s why, I’m filing it under “Vegetarian” ;) It’s a surprise how something so simple and healthy can taste so gorgeous!

      Red onion taste is not that sharp like raw white onions, perhaps you can try it :D

    I really love this, it tastes so incredibly fresh and natural. It’d go well with a variety of meals but it’s superb with fajitas.

    Hi Kim, I’ve been reading your blog for a while. Love it!

    Thanks for the recipe..will try it, looks really simple and awesome! =)

    May skip the coriander though…not a big fan. I saw in the last 2 pics you have something on your fajita besides the salad.. is it grilled chicken?

    Great recipe, I use almost the same ingredients for my salsa except I substitute balsamic vinegar in place of lemon juice to give an underlying sweetness on top of the sourish vinegar. =)

    Nice and simple and delicious! I threw some sliced jalapenos in mine when I made it for an extra kick. I was thinking of maybe adding a dash of cumin too, but I didn’t. What do you think?

    • Kimberlycun April 8, 2011 at 12:51 pm #

      thank you! i think you should absolutely go for it, i can imagine the depth of flavours the cumin can give!
