Cilantro Garnish on Grilled Salmon

This is my favorite garnish yet. OMG, you can dab this garnish just about on anything. My husband was looking for a salmon recipe and stumbled upon this garnish to go with the grilled salmon. It goes so well also with any poached or grilled summer vegetables.

Recipe is so simple and easy. But I like to prepare two different consistency to give a twist and bite to the garnish.

Here are the ingredients:
3 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoon lime juice
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 red onion
1 large tomato
1/2 cup cilantro ( or a little more )

Works really well to coarsely chop up all the ingredients listed. Divide 1/3 in one bowl and 2/3 in another bowl of the chopped ingredients. Place all the chopped ingredients from the bowl with 2/3 chopped ingredients into a small electric chopper, pause chopper several times to obtain a semi-pureed sauce. Pour puree back into bowl, now scoop the coarsely chopped on top of semi-pureed bowl.

     Delish !!

       Now, look at this sumptous dinner, grilled salmon and green beans topped with cilantro garnish...
         ..... so so delish !! who says hearty dinner has to be unhealthy!

        Here is the 1/3 bowl of coarsely chopped garnish

               Here is the 2/3 bowl of semi-pureed garnish

                 Coarsely chopped on the left   and   semi pureed garnish on the right
