Tomato Salsa

This was introduced to us by an aunty in Nairobi who was very innovative in the kitchen.

An excellent accompaniment for rice and roasts or serve as a dip with tacos, crisps, pitta or French bread.


  • 4 oz firm red tomatoes cut into small pieces
  • 4 oz finely chopped red/white onion
  • 2 tbs freshly sliced green coriander
  • half tsp salt
  • 2 tbs fresh/bottled lemon juice
  • 2 small finely sliced green chillies or Jalapenos
  • 2 tbs tomato ketchup or 1 tbs tomato puree or 4 tbs tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbs good quality chillie sauce e.g Tobasco, Encona


  1. Place all ingredients in a serving bowl, mix well, add 2 tbs water to thin down if required, cover and refrigerate before serving.
  2. For milder Salsa – omit green chillies and chillie sauce.
