Basic Tomato Salsa

Salsa is a staple in our house. We have it with chips, wraps, fries and in many other ways. Ofcourse its consumption peaks during football season. Here is a recipe for simple salsa which is our favorite. This dish goes to PJ's No cook event.


1 ripe tomato diced
1/2 cup crushed tomato
1-2 garlic cloves finely diced
1/4 medium onion chopped
1 spring onion with greens chopped
1-2 Jalapeno or Serrano peppers finely diced
1 tablespoon coriander/cilantro chopped
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons olive oil

Mix all the ingredients and keep for about 2 hours for the flavors to mix. Serve with chips or any way you like. 

Serving / Cooking suggestions-
Add it grilled vegetable sandwiches for a spice kick
Add to Mexican rice for added flavor in place of tomato puree
Add one part sour cream to two parts salsa to make a creamy salsa dip
