Buyer's guide

Most supermarkets sell fresh ready-made salsa as well as mild or hot salsa in jars, but the flavour is never as good as that of homemade salsa.

Preparation

It’s easy to make either a coarse salsa with just a knife and chopping board - alternatively, for a smooth salsa, whizz the ingredients in a food processor. Serve salsa with tortilla chips and dips such as guacamole or soured cream, or use it as a sauce or for topping pasta or pizza. Fruit salsas made with mango or pineapple go well with grilled fish or chicken.
