Simple Salsa

Turn your leftover tomatoes, capsicum, corn and avocado into a fresh, delicious salsa! Perfect for an afternoon snack with crudites or home-baked crisps.

Serves 4


Home-baked crisps

2 wholemeal wraps or pita breads


½ capsicum, finely diced

½ avocado, finely diced

1 corn cob 

2 tomatoes, finely diced

1/3 telegraph cucumber, finely diced

3 Tbsp coriander, chopped

Juice of ½ lemon or lime


1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Bring a half full kettle to the boil. 

2. Place corn cob in a heat-proof bowl and cover with boiling water. Cover and leave to blanch for about 5 minutes. Drain, run under cold water to cool then remove kernels. 

3. Toss wrap/pita triangles on a lined oven tray with ½ tsp oil. Season well with salt and pepper. Bake for 3–4 minutes, until lightly golden.

4. Prep salsa veggies. 

5. Mix salsa. In a bowl toss all salsa ingredients with ½ tsp olive oil until combined.

6. Serve salsa with home-baked crisps, or use salsa as a salad topper for lunches, or part of a dinner meal.
