Sometimes on Friday nights, OK, a lot times on Friday nights, I don't feel like cooking. And if my boys aren't home for the weekend, you can pretty much forget it.
I will often turn to a snack supper, lay out some cheese and avocado, or make a simple salsa and have chips. Please don't judge the health factor on that, consider the Friday night “Fatigue Factor” instead.
This is quick to put together, and if you make the day before, it's even better and less fuss on Friday night.
2 ripe tomatoes or 4 plum tomatoes, cored and roughly chopped
1/4 medium onion, finely chopped (about 3 Tbsp)
1/4 jalapeno, seeded and minced
2 Tbsp chopped fresh coriander (aka cilantro)
1 tsp kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
In a small bowl, mix together the tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, coriander, salt and season with pepper to taste. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
