*Depending on the ripeness of your tomatoes, you can use a little honey to help give fresh tomatoes a summertime-fresh flavor. This salsa has a hint of spice without the jalapeno but if you're a fan of heat, add jalapeno that is deseeded to your preference.
Whisk together Chilean Merquen Seasoning, salt, oil, vinegar, lime juice/zest, and honey. Mix together all ingredients, including Merquen mix, until well combined. For a more developed flavor, chill for 30 min. before serving.
Chilean salsa is commonly served on bread. In the test kitchen, we spread smashed avocado onto slices of French bread and piled on the salsa for a fresh Chilean-style "bruschetta." You can also serve it with chips, tacos, or grilled meats.
