  • 2 red peppers
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 250 g cherry tomatoes 1 1/4 cups when diced
  • 1 bunch coriander/cilantro
  • 1 lime
  • 1 generous pinch cayenne pepper
  1. Roughly chop and roast the peppers, ideally several hours ahead of time. I cooked them for an hour on gas mark 5 in a glass dish, with 1 tbsp of olive oil and turned them once. Set aside to cool.

  2. Finely dice the onion and quarter the tomatoes. Place them in your serving dish.

  3. Zest and juice your lime, and add this. Chop your coriander/cilantro and mix it in.

  4. Now finely dice the roasted peppers and mix them in, along with the cayenne pepper.
