Tomatoe and olive salsa


It seems to be the week or months of little nice side dishes all of a sudden , eh 🙂 !?

Yesterday I tried this one next to one of the courses Stephanie and I were testing for our next cooking workshop and next to being fast and easy to make, it was extremely tasty and of course veeeeeeeeeeeeery healthy.

4 portions


12 cherry tomatoes or 3 large tomatoes
half a cucumber
2 spring onions
1 crushed garlic clove
1 dl chopped, fresh basil
1 dl chooped black olives
2 tbsnpns freshly squeezed lemon juice
salt & pepper

The original recipe said to slice the tomatoes in small cubes and remove the pits but I left the pits in, which gave it more of a “salsa-feel”. Plus I also feel it tastes more like tomatoes as well with the pits in.
Anyway, do slice your tomatoes in little cubes :-)…
Do the same with the cucumber (also here it said to scrape out the seeds of the cucumber but I left them in).
Chop the springonion.

Stir all the ingredients together and season with salt and pepper.

This can be served next to your bbq, or any fish, meat or tofu cooked in your favorite way.
You can also serve this little salsa with your tortillas of course, or serve it on a buffet as one of many different side dishes or salsas.

However you choose to have it, enjoy!
