Summer Salsa | Spice up your salads

Summer Salsa recipe

If you’ve been following my instagram feed for a while now, you’ll have noticed that I’ve been enjoying my salads with a spoonful or two of summer salsa added to the plate. I just adore the fresh flavours all mixed together and it’s a really great way of living up a plain salad for lunch or dinner. The recipe is completely synfree and uses speed foods so is perfect for those on the Slimming World plan.

Here’s the recipe so you can make it to liven up your salads this Summer;


Red Onion
Red Pepper
Red Chilli
Juice of a Lime
Teaspoon of Dried Coriander
Teaspoon of Dried Mint


Hollow out the tomato
Deseed the red chilli
Finely dice all the other ingredients
Mix together in a bowl
Squeeze the juice of a lime onto the mixture
Mix well
Serve with your favourite salad

The best thing about this recipe is that you can add as little or as much of the ingredients as you like. I really like cucumber and red onion so tend to cut up a lot more of these ingredients over the chilli and peppers. I like to season my salads when they’re on the plate so don’t tend to bother seasoning the salsa otherwise it might end up being over seasoned.

The Summer Salsa is perfect as an accompaniment to any grilled meat dish and would be perfect for Summer barbecues and to add to the table at parties.
