Tomato, red onion and coriander salad



6 plum / roma tomatoes; sliced into round slices
1 small or 1/2 medium or 1/3 large red onion, sliced
1/2 cup chopped coriander
1 lime juiced
1 table spoon olive oil
salt to taste.

1. Mix the sliced tomoatoes, onions and coriander
2. add dressing made with lime juice, olive oil and salt (put in a small bottle and shake)

this is a really refreshing salad, I make it all the time, but when I made it in Edmonton, everyone was asking for the recipe - so here it is people!
Sometimes I leave out the dressing and just add a little salt.

I know this tastes fabulous! Sometimes you can just mix with rice and eat it. When it is stored for a while,it gets juicy!:)

This must be what you meant when you spoke of Swahili influence. We call it kachumbari and it's an East African favourite.

This recipe is the indian influence on East African cooking.
