Sometimes a simple salad can be so refreshing. This is lovely served with grilled meat or fish.
Preparation time 10 minutes, serves 4 as a side salad
1 large carrot, grated
1 large bunch fresh corriander, finely chopped (about 3 heaped tbsp)
1 tbsp seasame seeds
For the dressing
2 tbsp olive oil
Juice of 1 large lemon
2 tbsp maple syrup
salt and pepper to season
Cut the tomatoes in half and scoop out all the seeds with a spoon (if you prefer you can keep the seeds but they make the salsa more watery) and finely chop the tomato flesh. Mix the carrot, chopped tomato, corriander and seasame seeds in a bowl gently so that everything is combined. Place all the dressing ingredients in a bowl and whisk to emulsify, then stir gently through the salsa and serve immediately.
