Tomato, Lime & Cilantro Salsa with Chicken

You know those nights when you have no idea what to have for dinner?  Or those times you pull of a few chicken breasts from the freezer and now you need a game plan for what to do with them?

Hubby stumbled onto this recipe quite a while ago as he was flipping through one of my cookbooks looking for inspiration after I told him I was taking a night off from making dinner.

We now make this meal a lot; at least twice a month. 
We love it in the summer because it is fresh and fast and still allows you to keep the house cool, and we it in the winter because it is fresh and makes us forget that there are 3 feet of snow outside our door.

You can really use this salsa on anything, but our favourite way is to grill chicken breast and serve with rice, and then top both with the salsa, but if your favourite meat is pork, I am sure that would be great too.

Tomato, Lime & Cilantro Salsa

4-6 Roma tomatoes, small dice
½ cup finely chopped cilantro
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1 lime, zested and juiced
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons white sugar
Salt & freshly ground pepper

Mix everything together in a bowl,;allow to sit for 10-15 minutes to allow the flavours to blend.
