Homemade Salsa

By | February 3, 2017

I love salsa. Both on a burger, or as a dip. It’s amazing how much flavour it holds, and how much you can do by making a few small changes. This one I made to top a halloumi and red pepper burger, so it’s nice and chunky, which adds a great crunch. But, if you wanted to use it as a dip, or spread, just blend it all up until it’s the consistency you want.

You will need:

  • 4 Tomatoes
  • 1 Green chilli
  • 1 Clove garlic
  • 5 Onion
  • 1 Lime
  • 2 Tbsp. Oil
  • Pinch salt and pepper

salsa ingredients

It’s so simple, just chop your tomatoes, onion and chilli, nice and fine, then add to a bowl. Next, either chop, crush or grate the garlic into the bowl. Mix it all together well.

chopped chili

Squeeze in the juice of 1 lime, add the oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper to taste, then mix It all together.

I tend to cling film it, and leave it in the fridge for a few hours before I serve, which just lets the flavours develop a bit more, giving it a punch.

Great on Burgers, but you could add it to anything. Even a cheese sandwich would be amazing topped with a homemade salsa.
