This is one of my quick favourite salad recipes. When I live in London I actually didn't like tomatoes, somehow I always ended up with tasteless watery tomatoes, but after some time and experience, I learnt a few things about how to check for tasty juicy ripe tomatoes.
Here are my checkpoints, these are just according to my personal experience.
Colour -I find the redder they are the better.
Size - I always choose small-medium sized tomatoes.
Smell - Ripe tomatoes usually have a tomato fragrance, if they have absolutely no smell I don't take them.
Country of Origin -In my dreams when I have a garden I wish to grow my own but for now, I try to buy locally produced organic if it's off-season I tend to go for tomatoes from Italy.
4 medium Tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 cup chopped onion
1 small chilli (optional)
1 medium firm but ripe Avocados
4 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons of lime juice or1drop lime essential oil.
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup cilantro leaves chopped.
Add diced tomatoes, Avocado, cilantro and chopped onions (and chilli if you are using it) to a bowl and mix thoroughly.
If you will use lime essential oil, in a separate small bowl or cup add olive oil and use the toothpick method to add the lime essential oil, after adding to the salsa.
If you will use lime juice you can add the olive oil and lime juice straight to your salsa and mix
Last but not least add the ground black pepper and salt to adjust according to taste.
Serve as a side or on a nice piece of sourdough bread. Yum.
