Salsa Fresca

Salsa in Mexican translates to sauce and Fresca means fresh. So, Salsa Fresca is nothing but a fresh sauce. Made of a mixture of tomatoes, onions and cilantro(coriander leaves) this is usually served as a dip with Nachos, but I love it with Tortillas and even with Poori.

Ingredients :

6 ripe tomatoes

1 onion chopped

4 green chillies

Handful of fresh cilantro

2 large cloves garlic, roughly chopped

2 Tbsp fresh lime juice

1/2 tsp sugar

Salt and pepper to taste


Chop the tomatoes, onion and cilantro. Tip in the garlic cloves and green chillies in a blender. Crush. Add the tomatoes, onion, lemon juice and cilantro and run it on pulse mode. It should remain chunky. Pour it into a bowl. Add the salt, pepper and sugar. Mix well and serve.


Mexicans also make it by dry roasting the tomatoes, garlic, chillies and onions. It gives the Salsa a smoky flavour.
