About this recipe:Ripe tomatoes, red onion, jalapeno chilli pepper, fresh coriander and lime juice combine in this salsa that's bursting with flavour. Over the years, I have tweaked this recipe and learnt a few tricks to perfect it. The first trick is to marinate the onions and jalapenos in lime juice for about 5 minutes before adding the tomatoes and coriander. The second tip is to hand chop everything and not be tempted to use a food processor. It takes a while, but it is worth it.
