Snack for 4 persons
about 10 minutes
  • 1 bunch fresh coriander (about 20 g/ ¾oz)
  • 1 bunch fresh mint (about 20 g/ ¾oz)
  • 1 large lime
  • 1/2 tbsp ginger syrup
  • 2 ripe tomatoes
  • 200 g (7oz) Leyden Cheese (with cumin)
  • 200 g (7oz) tortilla chips
  • 4 spring onions
  • cayenne pepper
  • pepper & salt
  • Chop the spring onions roughly.
  • Shred the mint finely. Chop the coriander.
  • Cut the tomatoes into very small pieces.
  • Cut the cheese into very small (mini) cubes.
  • Wash the lime with warm water. Grate the rind finely over a big bowl. Squeeze the lime and mix the juice and rind. Add the ginger syrup and a little cayenne pepper. Season the dressing with pepper & salt and stir well. Toss with the spring onions, tomatoes, herbs and cheese.
  • Spoon the Leyden cheese, tomato and lime salsa into 4 small dishes or 1 large dish. Place on plates and scatter the tortilla chips around the dip.
You can add a few chopped sundried tomatoes to the salsa - they enhance the flavour of the cheese wonderfully.
* Works well with Cumin cheese too.
