Fresh Tomato Salsa

From Mexican Food Made Simple, Thomasina Miers, Hodder & Stoughton, 2010.

I needed a salsa as an ingredient for making Ortega burgers so decided I would try this one from Mexican Food Made Simple. The salsa was easily made; it was simply a matter of chopping the ingredients and mixing them together.

The tomatoes were deseeded before chopping so that they would not be too watery. To them were added chopped coriander, red onion and jalapeños. Now some olive oil went into the mix with lime juice, a little brown sugar and salt and pepper. It was tasted to see that it was right and adjustments were made: a little more salt and some more lime juice. It was now left for about half and hour for the flavours to meld.

As a salsa this one was quick to make and worked well.
