Easy, healthy, burger dressing

We have the Americans to thank for introducing us to the good old ‘burger and fries’ and it’s a dish Brits (and the rest of us) love just as much.

Burgers in buns make for a wonderful simple supper too, and just by switching a few sides - such as mayonnaise for juicy home-made salsa - gives an old classic a delicious, yet healthy spin.

Here's how to make the salsa (it literally takes minutes and costs next-to-nothing):

4-5 ripe tomatoes
tsp of ground coriander seeds
¼ tsp cumin
1 clove of garlic, smashed
½ a small onion, diced
½ a small green chilli (with or without seeds)
dash or two of freshly squeezed lime juice

Drop all the ingredients into a food processor and give it a whizz - not too long though; the salsa is best a bit chunky.

Pile on freshly grated beetroot, rocket, a sprinkling of mozzarella, and enjoy!
