Method

  1. In a bowl, mix together the tomatoes, onion, chillies, coriander, parsley and garlic.
  2. Mix with a dressing made from the oil, lemon juice or wine vinegar, salt and pepper.
  3. Allow to rest at room temperature for at least 3 hours before serving.

Serving suggestions

Ideal with one of Chile's national dishes Porotos Granados, which is a bean and vegetable stew. It would also be an excellent accompaniment for meat.

Variations

Sometimes the tomatoes are left out and you can use all parsley or all coriander. Apart from that there are no traditional variations although the ratios do differ according to personal taste.

Chef's notes

It can be difficult to decide which chillies to use. This recipe calls for hot chillies, but I would not go so far as to use 2 habañero chillies, for example. Serrano or jalapeño chillies would probably be about right. I would advise that you taste any chillies before adding them to this or other recipes.
