Strawberry Tomato Salsa

I saw this recipe on Life Away from the Office Chair and immeadiately wanted it. I made it for lunch for the next day and it was delicious. I changed the quantities a bit as I found the dressing was too much so my modified version is below, but do check out the original one to see which you prefer.
Serves 2 for a light lunch

1 pint chopped strawberries
1 pint of cherry tomatoes cut in half
1/2 cup chopped cilantro/coriander
2 Tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
Sprinkle of salt


The recipe calls for it to be refridgerated for an hour. I don't think this is necessary as it was great as soon as it was mixed. Because I made it for lunch I refridgerated overnight then had it out all morning before I ate it and it was still great. The strawberries were a little mushy but that just meant the dressing at the bottom was delicious and strawberry-ey. I had it with a slice of wholemeal olive bread, not the perfect combination but a bit of normal bread to mop up the sweet dressing at the end would be perfect.  yum. It would also be good to take to summer get togethers/brunches.

I also enjoyed making this recipe because my hands smelt GREAT afterwards; A mixture of coriander and strawberry juice. I kept sniffing them!


  1. This looks delicious Jess - loving the new look blog too :)

  2. I have never heard of olive bread! That sounds like it would be great with the salsa.
