This is the first salsa recipe I tried after becoming interested in making my own, it’s so good that I haven’t got around to trying any other recipes. Coriander seems to be one of those foods that inspires love or absolute hatred, if you’re a hater then you might be reading the wrong food blog. If you don’t have a food processor then just chop everything real fine and mix it together. Slap it on yo tacos or use it as a dip, you can’t go wrong.
Tomato Salsa (Pico de Gallo)
1/2 small red onion
1 jalapeno (de-seeded if you want it mild)
1 bunch of coriander
1 garlic clove
4 ripe tomatoes (or the equivalent weight in cherry tomatoes)
juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 tsp salt
In a food processor pulse the onion, jalapeno, coriander and garlic until chopped finely.
Add in the tomatoes and pulse until they reach desired consistency, pulse longer for a smoother salsa.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl and add in the lime juice and salt, taste and adjust seasoning.
