This recipe is so easy and tasty that you will never buy prepackaged salsa again! It is also free of garlic, making this allergy safe for my granddaughter, daughter and me. Salsa is low calorie, inexpensive to make and a compliment to a variety of foods. Use it in the following ways:

  • As a healthy salad dressing
  • Drizzled over beans and rice
  • As a substitute for ketchup
  • Instead of tomato sauce for a Mexican-style pizza
  • Tossed with crunchy, roasted potatoes or vegetables
  • As a baked potato topping
  • Drizzled on tacos or black bean burgers
  • As a dip for corn chips or fresh veggies such as celery, carrots and cucumber slices

I enjoy cooking with my son-in-law. He has an astute palate and it is fun to create tasty meals that are healthy and safe for all our our family members. Last evening, we made his salsa recipe and I finally measured the ingredients to share with others. Seth and I both tend to cook by taste rather than following recipes (which is why it takes me so long to post new ones to the blog!). I made another batch this morning. Delicious!
