Tomato, Cilantro, & Green Onion Relish Pictorial

I received a small bag of cherry tomatoes from my mom and decided to make tomato, cilantro, and green onion relish.  This is a very simple yet delicious relish that goes great with any type of meat (I love pairing it with deep fried or broiled pork) and stir-fry dishes.  This dish is also good sans tomatoes and/or using mushrooms instead of tomatoes.

Ingredients:

–  2 Thai chili peppers

–  a handful of cilantro (about 1/3 c)

–  1 stalk green onion

–  10-12 cherry tomatoes

–  salt, to taste

–  MSG, to taste

Directions:

1.  Slice the cilantro, green onion, and cherry tomatoes into small pieces.

2.  In a mortar, pound the chili peppers with salt and MSG until finely crushed.  Add the cilantro and green onion into the mortar and add more salt and MSG to taste.  Pound lightly with the pestle until lightly bruised.  Add the cherry tomatoes and pound lightly and mix well.
