It’s time to go green people
Let’s be honest, when somebody says “I had this tasty salsa the other day”, your first thought about the Salsa is that it is red in colour and Tomato based. Which is fine, because let’s face it, that is the daddy of all salsa. But I’m here to give you a variation and let you guys know, there’s a new Salsa in town………and it’s green! This Green Salsa is a recipe that you’ll be doing time and time again.
This Salsa is everyone’s friend as it goes with just about anything. Slap it on some grilled meat, baked fish, grilled Halloumi or Feta. You can top your favourite Tacos with it or just use it as a dressing for some Salad. The possibilities for its use really are endless.
Just looking at a bowl of this will make your mouth water. This really is unbelievable fresh and perfect for the hotter months of the year. It is going be the new “must have” accessory for the BBQ season! It can be prepared super quick and will hold for 3 or 4 days in the fridge……if it lasts that long!
Doesn’t get much easier
As you guys will see by the below recipe, it really doesn’t get much easier. Everything just gets thrown into a bowl, let it sit for 20 minutes and then you’re ready to go!
- 2 x Green Peppers
- 1 x Green Chilli (add more if you’re a saucy little minx that likes things hot)
- 4 x Spring Onion
- ½ Cucumber
- Small bunch of Coriander
- 12 leaves of Mint
- 2 x Green Tomatoes
- Zest and juice of 1 lime
- ½ Teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 2 x Tablespoon Maple Syrup (or Honey if you prefer)
- 2 x Tablespoon of Vinegar (I used Sherry Vinegar but you can also use White Wine, Cider, Balsamic etc)
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Like I previously mentioned, everything basically gets thrown into a bowl. Dice up all ingredients, place Cinnamon, Vinegar, Syrup etc in and mix all around. Don’t forget to season with Salt & Pepper at this point.
- It may seem fairly dry but the longer you leave it, the more it will start to breakdown and become a wetter mix.
Like most recipes, they are a guideline. Have a play around and adjust to how you like. If you want this Salsa with a bit more of a kick, then add extra chillies. If you like it a bit zingier (if that’s even a word) then add more Lime. These types of dressings really come down to personal preference so experiment, add extra Mint or something extra like Mango and see if that hits the spot for you.
As always guys, I really hope you give this recipe a go and enjoy it. If you have any questions then please don’t hesitate to get in touch by the contact page via this site. Alternatively, you can find me by other forms of Social media, all links are on the home screen.
