Mmmm salsa

If you ever need to spice up a dish, here's a winning number.... This salsa is fresh, sophisticated and colourful! I've tried it with salmon and tuna, and am going to try it with chicken next.

So here's how to make it. This is for 6 people and it makes a lot! There's a lot of preparation but it's SO easy to put together...

1 mini cucumber/1/2 cucumber
1 Papaya
1 Mango
1/2 red onion
2 red chillies
20g fresh ginger
2 lemons
2 limes
4 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp caster sugar
2 tbsp fish sauce
6 piece of Fish/Meat

- Peel the cucumber, papaya, mango and onion and chop them into 1 cm size pieces or however big you like.

- Cut the chilli into fine slices, removing the seeds. Take the skin off the ginger and chop into tiny pieces.

- Grate the rinds of the lemons and limes and then squeeze all the juice into a cup.

- Now mix ALL of the ingredients into a bowl, and add the olive oil, caster sugar and fish sauce and stir. Easy as that!

- Leave to sit for an hour or two. Or you can keep it in the fridge, will last for about 2 days, and then take out about 30 mins before you serve so it's at room temperature and not freezing cold.

Voila! It is SO fresh and tasty and jazzes up any dish. Love it.
