Cheat's Char-Grilled Pepper Salsa Recipe

Fresh Salsa Recipe

My salsa recipe is so easy to make and requires no cooking at all. Salsa adds vibrant colours to chicken or fish and of course Mexican dishes and as a dip for tortillas.

Fresh salsa served with pan fried chicken

Chop a red onion into small dice, halve a few baby cherry tomatoes and finely chop one red chilli.

Take a few char-grilled red and yellow peppers from a jar and also chop into dice.

Season with a small pinch of sea salt and a pinch of freshly ground black pepper. 

Pour over a glug of extra virgin olive oil - say about a tablespoon or two depending on the amount of the ingredients you used and give it all a mix. Leave for at least half an hour at room temperature before using.

Just before serving, add a few chopped coriander leaves and add a squeeze of lime juice and have a taste. 

Serve with whatever takes your fancy - I served mine with pan-fried chicken and freshly baked crusty bread for dipping and mopping.

If you're looking for other Mexican sides you might like my recipe for guacamole.
