Make this salsa once and you’ll never buy salsa again. Just a handful of ingredients and it’s quick and easy. I marinate the onion in the lime juice to remove some of its bite and if you can find slightly over-ripe tomatoes those will give the tastiest salsa. Serve with homemade corn tortillas and simple black beans for a full spread.
½ red onion
1 large or 2 medium very ripe tomatoes
1 small bunch fresh coriander (washed well)
juice of 1 lime or lemon
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
Very finely dice the red onion and place in a bowl. Add the lemon juice and salt, mix well and set aside for 10-15mins.
Finely dice the tomatoes and the coriander (including the stems). Add to the onion along with pepper and mix.
Adjust the seasoning if necessary and transfer to a serving bowl.
