Matt Baker’s cherry salsa recipe

Did you see Matt Baker making a delicious cherry salsa at the Kent County Show on last Sunday's summer special episode of Countryfile? Here's the recipe for this tasty accompaniment to cooked meats.




Matt’s Cherry salsa recipe


450g cherries (stoned and coarsely shopped)

1 fresh chilli finely chopped

1 red onion finely chopped

1 tomato chopped

1 small yellow pepper chopped

7g coriander finely chopped


¼ tsp salt

1 tbsp raspberry vinegar

1 tbsp apple juice

1 tsp honey

1 tbsp cold pressed rape seed oil


Mix together cherries, chillies, tomato, red onion, yellow pepper and coriander in a large mixing bowl.

In a separate jar mix the dressing ingredients together and shake well.

Pour the dressing over the ingredients in the bowl and mix gently.

Take the mixed ingredients and place in a jar/bowl to stand at room temperature for 3 hours and then serve.

Goes very well with rich meats (venison, pigeon or duck) but equally well with lamb burgers!
