Healthy Recipe: Fresh tomato salsa
If you're like me, you will have had a bumper crop of tomato's this year. I don't think I can remember how many tomato's I've eaten, but it's been a lot.
If you are looking for an alternative to just chucking them in your salad at lunch or your spaghetti bolognese at dinner, look no further.
In this healthy recipe blog we will be showing you how to make Stuart's fresh tomato salsa recipe. In case you didn't know. Stuart, the owner of Sen5es, was a professional chef for 16 years. So he knows a thing or two.
First and foremost you will need some jars to store your salsa in. For small batches we would recommend our 125ml Round Jars, 190ml Round jar or the 277ml Tall jar. If you've got an even bigger crop of tomatoes I'd recommend going for either the 634ml Kilnclip Jar or the 1550ml Kilnclip jar.
2 large tomatoes or a handful of cherry tomatoes
1/2 of each coloured pepper (red, green and yellow)
1/2 an onion
A pinch of Salt and Pepper
1 tbsp Olive Oil
2 tbsp Tomato Ketchup
This one is really simple. And there are two options depending on how you like your salsa, chunky or smooth. Or is that peanut butter?
The chunky version
Chop your tomatoes in to chunks. It doesn't have to be too precise, a chunk salsa is always good.
Dice your onions. This will be better chopped a little finer as no one liked a big mouthful of onion.
Again chop up all your peppers. Chunky or fine are both okay. It depends on personal taste really.
Add all your chopped goodies in to a big bowl and mix in the salt, pepper, olive oil and tomato ketchup.
Put in to jars and your are done. Don't forget to store them in the fridge.
The smooth version
Chop up your onion and add that to the blender. Give them a wizz to make sure the onion is nice and fine.
Do the same for the peppers and give it another wizz to make sure everything is cut up nice and small.
Chop up your tomatoes and add them to a blender. Give them a quick wizz. Not too much this time as you still want the tomato consistency.
Add in the salt, pepper, olive oil and tomato sauce and give it a stir.
Bottle them up in to jars and store them in the fridge.
This recipe should last about 5-14 days in the fridge.
Try adding fresh chilies and lime to this recipe to give it a kick. Perfect for eating with tortilla chips and guacamole.
For a fruitier version try adding chopped mango and coriander. This is great with chicken or on it's own!
You can also add fresh herbs such as coriander or basil to add some extra flavours.
Stuart's top tips
This simple tomato salsa goes perfectly with salmon. Simply fry in a pan with your salmon fillet and you are away. Combine with some fresh greens and some new potatoes and you've got an easy and healthy dinner.
