Tomato and orange pepper salsa

Really simple, yet really tasty recipe for a fresh and zingy salsa.

Works well as a side dish with salads, mexican cuisine, grilled meats and fish. Also a great dip for potato crisps and tortilla chips.

Tomato and orange pepper salsa

Recipe is for 4 servings

Ingredients

125g plum tomatoes

2 red onions

Juice of 2 limes

1 orange bell pepper

Tsp brown sugar

Tsp smoked paprika

Handful of fresh coriander leaf

1/4 Tsp salt

1/4 Tsp ground black pepper

You require a food processor for this recipe. Use the main multi purpose chopping blade.

Method

Peel the onion and deseed the bell pepper. Add all the ingredients to a food processor. Use the pulse setting in bursts of 4-5 seconds, stopping between pulses for a few seconds until the salsa is finely chopped (see pictures for example) but before it is reduced to a paste. Set aside in a covered bowl in a fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving.
