Uncooked Spiced Tomato Sauce
(Salsa Cruda)
What You Need:
  • 4 medium tomatoes (about 1 pound)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)
  • 1 teaspoon drained, rinsed, and finely chopped canned serrano chili
  • ˝ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Pinch of sugar

  • How To Cook:
    1. Drop the tomatoes into a pan of boiling water and remove them after 15 seconds. Run them under cold water, and with a small, sharp knife, peel them.

    2. Cut the stem out of each tomato, and then slice the tomatoes in half crosswise. Squeeze the halves gently to remove the seeds and juices, and chop the tomatoes fine.

    3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the tomatoes, onions, coriander, chili, salt, pepper and sugar, and with a large spoon mix them together gently but thoroughly.

    4. Taste for seasoning. If the sauce is not to be served immediately, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate. It will keep for at least 2 days.

    5. "Salsa cruda" is traditionally served with cooked meats, poultry, fish, tacos and tostadas.

    To Make: about 2 cups
