Quick and Easy Salsa Recipes

When I think of Salsa, I think of the explosion of flavors. Though one uses simple day to day ingredients when it is all mixed it is flavourful, exciting and addictive. It can be eaten as a side with quesadilla or fajitas or just as an appetizer with tortilla chips.

Fresh Corn Salsa

Ingredients

  • 2 corn on the cobs – steamed or grilled and remove kernels

  • 1 onion, chopped fine
  • 6-8 cherry tomatoes or 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 raw mango – chopped (optional)
  • 2 tbsp coriander leaves/ cilantro – chopped
  • juice of 1 lime

  • To give it an Indian twist- add some peanuts to it and sprinkle some sev (a crispy snack made from gram flour)

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Ingredients

  • 3-4 tomatoes, chopped fine
  • 1 onion, chopped fine

  • 1/4 tsp chilli powder
