    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.

    • 160g finely chopped red onion

    • 1 teaspoon salt

    Delicious. Soaked the red onion in hot water for 10 minutes prior to adding to the pico de gallo. It takes the harshness out of the onion. - 06 May 2016
