    30 min

    A fantastic tasting salsa recipe given to me by a close friend. The flavour of grilled tomatoes and spices tastes great with tortilla crisps.

    1. Preheat the grill.
    2. Arrange tomatoes on a medium baking tray. Checking frequently and turning occasionally, grill tomatoes until darkened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and place in a small, sealed container to cool, about 15 to 20 minutes.
    3. Remove and discard tomato skins. Chop tomatoes and place in a medium bowl. Mix in red onion, garlic, red chillies, coriander, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cover and allow to stand about 1 hour before serving.

    Used this salsa on nachos...much better than from the jar! I let it stand o'night in the fridge for the flavours to mix.  -  01 Oct 2012


    I am always looking for a good salsa recipe. The tomatoes definitly have to be cooked longer than 5 minutes, and the flavor was really .."blah". Usually a cooked salsa will be mashed or blended. I am not sure if its supposed to be fresh salsa or not..Not happy..still searching for a good recipe.  -  09 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is beyond HEAVENLY! I prepare this with every Mexican dish I make. I learned from my mom! I don't use olive oil though...  -  25 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
