Salsa rossa

Side Serves 6 10 min
This very easy to make, piquant tomato sauce goes well with grilled meat and sausages, pasta and polenta, and steamed, roasted or battered veg. Our Travelling Field Kitchen served it on grilled lamb marinated in lemon, garlic and lots of rosemary. For vegetarians, try making Jerusalem artichokes in batter with salsa rossa.


  • 6 tomatoes, skinned, deseeded and sliced
  • 1 large red pepper, roasted, peeled and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed

  • 2 anchovies, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp parsley, chopped


Prep time: 10 min
