Salsa - Healthy Food




Makes 3 cups

Prep Time: 15 minutes

6 tomatoes, cored, seeded, and diced

½ cup chopped fresh cilantro

½ onion, finely diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 jalapeño, finely diced

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon black pepper

Grated zest and juice of ½ lime

Salsa is a great replacement for ketchup, and livens up just about any ingredient. It’s great on Perfect Scrambled Eggs, as a topping for a Perfect Seared Chicken Breast or a Perfect Burger, or as a dip for raw celery, carrots, and jicama sticks.

Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl and stir gently to combine. Serve immediately, or allow the flavors to come together in the refrigerator for 1 to 3 hours.

Store your salsa in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

✪Quick Prep A vegetable chopper would cut your prep time in half, and ensure all of your dice were the same size. You can find them at any kitchen store, or on Amazon—they’re generally between $12 and $30. You could use a food processor to carefully pulse each ingredient one at a time, but don’t combine them all at once, or you’ll end up with a bowl of mushy salsa.
