I love it with a zing.
I love it on tortilla chips.
I love it on rice.
And I love it on just plain chicken.When you adopt a lifestyle that consists of little to no salt and little to no sugar, sometimes you have to become a little creative on your own. Such is the case with my salsa. You can buy no-salt added salsa.
It’s OK, but honestly, it’s not great. I want flavor. Fresh flavor and a lot of it. So I decided to whip up that flavor on my own.
Now my tomatoes didn’t do well in the garden this year with all of the rain, so I settled for canned tomatoes, but rest assured, when those flavorful babies appear again next summer, I will be making it fresh all the way!
This recipe for homemade salsa is so simple and quick to make.
**3 cans of Organic Muir Glen no salt tomatoes seasoned with garlic, basil & oregano
**1/2 large vidalia onion, loosely chopped
**1/2 large red onion, loosely chopped
**4 large jalapeño peppers, seeded
** 1 large bell pepper, seeded and loosely chopped
**2 cups fresh cilantro leaves
** 2 cloves fresh garlic
**1 Tablespoon ground black pepper
** 1-2 teaspoons cayenne pepper (depending on how spicy you like it)
**1/4 cup lemon or lime juice
You can adjust any of the seasonings to suit your taste, but otherwise, That’s it …. easy peasy, and absolutely a hit at the table for a fajita salad dinner! Refrigerate what you don’t use.
While this recipe is good whether you are watching what you eat or not, it is ideal for someone who is on a low-sodium and low-sugar diet. And to let you know how good my kids thought it was, they used an entire half-liter jar as well as the smaller juice jar of the salsa at one meal!
