Tomato Salsa (Pico de Gallo)


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.

  1. My brother requested tacos, so I’m going to make this!! As much as I love tacos, by the time you buy the taco shells, salsa and taco seasoning, there are soooo many artificial flavours and preservatives… So I’m going to make as much as I can from scratch!
