Tomato salsa for chicken or fish

This makes a very flavorful topping for broiled chicken or fish. I got it from a column in the local paper about "bright young chefs". The recipe is from chef Cincy Pawlcyn at Mustards Grill, Yountville, CA.


(serves 6 to 8)


  1. In a small bowl, soak scallions in lemon juice for 30 minutes.
  2. Drain scallions; reserve half of the lemon juice. Mince the scallions.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine minced scallions, reserved lemon juice and remaining ingredients. Mix together well. Serve over grilled, broiled or roasted chicken or fish.


The original recipe calls for double this amount of olive oil, but that seemed excessive.


Difficulty: easy if you have a food processor.
Time: 5 minutes preparation, 30 minutes soaking.
Precision: approximate measurement OK.
