Ground Cherry Salsa

 I found some beautiful ground cherries at the grocery store and couldn’t resist buying them. They make a delicious sweet-savory salsa to go along some grilled fish or some mature, lemony cheese.

Ground Cherry (Physalis) Salsa

150 gr/ about 3/4 cup ground cherries (physalis)
half (about 1/3 cup) small red onion, finely chopped
a bunch (about 1/2 cup) finely chopped cilantro
1/2 fresh red chilli, minced
juice of half lime
pinch of salt
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


Remove husk from ground cherries and rinse well. Cut into quarters and place in a small bowl. Add onion, cilantro and chilli. Season with lime juice, oil and salt to taste. Stir to combine. Let sit in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving to let the flavours combine. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

      Sarebbe bello se questa luce diffusa rimanesse tale, invece di dar spazio a momenti di grigio. Ma la primavera aiuta, solleva gli spiriti, cancella lo scontento. Un grande abbraccio.
