Salmon & Salsa with Mix-a-mato

A deliciously zesty salsa is a great topping to have on hand in summer whether your adding it to salmon or chicken for dinner or even having for brekkie on eggs and sourdough. Mix-a-Mato® tomatoes are great for this as each variety of tomato in the punnet brings different depth of flavour to the salsa - yum.
