Easy 15 minute tomato salsa

this is so easy, you will wonder why u never made it.  Suits a range of dishes as a side garnish or as the star.

3 ripe skinned tomatoes: drop the tarties into a saucepan of boiling water for 2 or 3 minutes, then drain and the skin slips off
roughly chop.

in the same saucepan, add the now prepared tomatoes, 1 tbsp olive oil or vegie oil, good pinch of sea salt, cracked black pepper and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally
meanwhile, chop fresh herbs, parsley, basil or even oregano and add to the tomatoes.
to finish, add a good squeeze of lemon juice, and adjust the sweetness to taste with a little sugar.
if the tomatoes aren't that ripe or lack a little flavour, add 1 tbsp of tomato paste.

so much tastier then shop bought salsa.
