This month, we’re celebrating all things Brazil! And while it may not be an official sport, we think skills in the kitchen definitely deserve a podium. This Brazilian Vinaigrette Salsa will take you right to the top!

To make Mexican salsa, you use lime juice to bind the ingredients together. But to do it the Brazilian way, you use olive oil and vinegar.

This Brazilian Vinaigrette Salsa makes a great accompaniment for grilled meat, chicken or fish and is a must at any barbecue or steakhouse in Brazil. It is also traditionally served with feijoada, or black bean stew, which is Brazil’s national dish. But if you’re not quite in the mood of stew too, this salsa is still perfect for your next TV-watching get-together! 


  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 4 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 green or red bell pepper, diced (optional)
  • ⅓ cup chopped parsley
  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
  2. Season with salt and pepper and serve!
