Hey food fans,
I just had a pot-luck at work today. The real challenge of cooking for one of those is the timing. Making sure that whatever you make is served the way its supposed to be. The problem with that is with a microwave you get nothing crunchy, and in a toaster oven not the quickest. And at work that is all we are equiped with. The next challenge is bringing it in and finding space in the fridge for it.
So partly because my girlfriend has been talking about taking Salsa lessons, and the great success of a gathering I had with it, I chose Salsa and Chips. Supper easy to make and store and its eaten with chips so preparing at work is as easy as plating. Here is the recipe for a simple salsa:
You will need:
8-10 Roma (Italian, plum or any other name for the avocado shaped) tomatoes
handful of Coriander (cilantro) chopped fine
zest and juice of one lime
one french shallot minced
2 cloves of garlic grated
1 Jalepeño (the smaller/older the hotter) seeds removed, diced
salt and pepper to taste
Dice your tomatoes and put into medium mixing bowl. Add other ingredients. Salt and pepper, and chill for at least 1 hour. Serve with chips or on top of your favourite Tex-Mex dish.
Enjoy and bon appetite!
