Avocado Tomato Salsa (Delia Smith)

Allright, I'm not a trend setter, I'm a trend follower instead
Everytime Cook Like A Star launches the star chef of the month, I always start with browsing through their website, or their cookbook if I own one
And then I'll look through what others make, and almost 100%, I'll end up listing down what I shall make from them
And this month is no exception either LOL

Another mouthwatering dish from Delia Smith I saw at Mich from Piece of Cake I coudn't resist :)

What you need:

1 ripe firm avocado
2  firm tomatoes
1 shallot (I used 3)
1 tbsp fresh lime juice (I used large lime)
1 heaped tbsp chopped fresh coriander (I used 2 tbsp)
a few drops of tabasco sauce
salt, black pepper
sugar (I added)

  1. Skin the tomatoes b y pouring boiling water over them, leave it for a few minutes, drain and slip skin off when cool to handle
  2. Cut in half, hold each half over a saucer (cut side down), squeeze gently to extract seeds
  3. Chop tomato finely
  4. Halve avocado, remove stone and cut each half into quarters and peel off the skin
  5. Chop into small dice, while slice the onion thinly
  6. Combine everything in a bowl, add in seasoning, lime juice, coriander and tabasco
  7. Civer with clingwrap and leave in the fridge for at least an hour before serving

I had this refreshing salsa with my homemade chicken burger, delish!
I will make this again with grilled salmon, just like what Mich did
Thinking about it makes me drooling already, yum! :)

  1. Hi Alice,

    Whether you are a trend setter or a trend follower, I reckon that you are a great cook and your family is very lucky to have you cooking for them :D

    Totally agree that this salsa is a great side to compliment a chicken or a fish main dish... *drooling*
