Delicious Salads

Salsa Sambal

This sambal is very much like fresh salsa. I often make this when I prepare a Mexican dish and when preparing Indian rice dishes like biryani. If you prefer this salsa really spicy, just add more chilies.

This salad/sambal is also a popular accompaniment to barbecues. It's freshness helps to distill the rich foods of barbecues. Enjoy it with tortilla chips as well.
