Garden to plate - tomato, coriander salsa

It has been so hot in Melbourne and the heat is going to continue for another few days. The heat is really starting to effect me, the kids and the garden. My poor herbs, are dropping, even though I water them daily and they are in the shade.

Luckily I was able to get enough coriander and probably almost our last crop of cherry tomatoes for the season and make a refreshing salsa. This one is well worth making and can be eaten by itself or goes well on garlic / herb bread, lamb or chicken.

For the one pictured above I used:

14 cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons of fresh coriander
2 avocados (have to try growing these next)
1 glove of crushed garlic
2 tablespoons of lime juice
A pinch of salt and pepper

Mix all ingredients together and enjoy!


  1. I love coriander in anything. Adds such an amazing fresh flavour! xo

  2. These are the 2 things I grew last year that flourished in the garden. Sadly I have a puppy now who thinks its fun to dig up my herbs and chew all my plastic pots :( When she has grown out of that faze Ill be stuck into the gardening again! I use coriander in everything, love it!


Thanks for leaving a comment, I love reading them...
