Thread Name: BS: Salsa recipes
Subject: RE: BS: Salsa recipes
Described by Nigel Slater (the doyen of food writers in the UK at present) as "A refreshing Salsa for pan fried fish", this has a nice zing.

1 small red onion, finely diced.
6 ripe, sweet tomatoes.
2 small red chillies de-seeded and finely sliced.
Good handful of coriander leaves, chopped.
Juice of 2 limes.
Caster sugar.
Fruity olive oil.

Chop the tomatoes into small dice, removing the hard cores, put the tomatoes in a bowl with the onion and chillies. Mix in the coriander leaves, lime juice and a knife point of sugar. Add salt erring on the side of generosity. Drizzle with a little olive oil. Serve soon after making, or the coriander goes black. Also good with chicken.


From Elizabeth David's "Italian Food".
SALSA VERDE
(Green Sauce)

Oil, lemon juice, parsley, capers, garlic, salt and pepper, all mixed together as for a vinaigrette. There should be plenty of parsley and the sauce should be rather thick. Chopped anchovy fillets are sometimes added.
