Fresh and spicy salsa

    15 min

    This recipe is bursting with flavour! It is fresh and spicy, and did I mention easy? The chillies and Tabasco add heat, and the coriander, lime juice and spring onions create freshness.

    Not tried it, but it sounds nice, I like it hot, so would probably ad an extra chilli.  -  08 May 2014


    I love this salsa! I have made this 4 times already. I took it to a work potluck this week and got many requests for the recipe. As others mentioned, it can be get a little watery. After I seed the tomatoes and chop them in my food processor, I let them sit in a strainer while I do the rest of the work. This helps make it less watery. Thanks!  -  29 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
