I made my own salsa finally! After procrastinating, watching countless videos and eating good ones, I’ve made my own.

I don’t have a picture of the salsa in its entirety, but this will do. My midnight snack: Edam cheese, pepperoni slices, salsa, rocket leaves and ketchup added later.

The salsa I made is very easy and I trust that there are many excellent salsa recipes out there! I made it in bulk and put it in the fridge so that the flavors are allowed to develop.

6 tomatoes, diced
1 red onion, diced
1 clove of garlic, pureed (use salt and grind it against the chopping board with a knife)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Lemon
1 Chilli
Fresh Coriander, finely chopped

Optional: Tabasco

All the ingredients go into a mixing bowl, liquids next and just mix! Transfer it into a plastic container of your choice and put it in the fridge and allow the flavours to develop!

The ingredients can be varied depending on how you like it. After all, cooking is a philosophy! If 1 onion is too much, use half or even a quarter. You can use jalapeño peppers in place of chilli, lime juice in place of lemon (or different acids if you wish to experiment!)
