Simple Salsa Recipe

Mexican food is having quite the revival at the moment.  Personally I love anything involving guacamole and melted cheese but I’m even more enamoured with coriander.

It’s a contentious herb.  A friend once coined it the “devil’s weed” so this salsa is probably not for him.  For anyone else not particularly impressed with the store bought stuff I guarantee this is so easy you’ll never need buy it again.

Cuisine: Mexican
  • 3-5 tomatoes or one tin of tomatoes
  • ½ tablespoon of brown sugar
  • ½ red onion
  • ¼ cup of jalapenos (jar or fresh)
  • 1 cup of chopped coriander (include the root - plenty of flavour!)
  • salt
  • water
  1. Roughly chop your ingredients before blending with a pinch of salt and a few tablespoons of water. Pulse gently until the consistency is to your liking. Enjoy with corn chips and beer - you might need it if you used too many jalapenos!

    I’m a sucker for Mexican food and a lover of coriander, so this salsa is a winner in my book. Might have to put my stretchy pants on, whip this salsa up, slather it over a massive bowl of nachos and enjoy a night in. Yum!
