Hope you are celebrating independence day with your loved ones! 

Need a festive (and simple) snack to take to a BBQ or to a gathering this weekend?  Check out this delicious salsa recipe excerpted from my book I co-authored with Dr. David Brownstein The Guide to Healthy Eating

You can serve this red salsa with some blue corn chips and white corn chips to give a nice red, white and blue theme.  Plus, check out this past post for more ideas: Festive Ideas for the Fourth 

Simply Salsa

1            small Vidalia onion

½           cup cilantro

3            cloves garlic    

3            cups tomato, diced

2-4        dashes cayenne (add to desired hotness)

½           lime, squeezed (or use lemon)

¼           teaspoon sea salt


Servings:  8                     Prep:  10-15 minutes

In food processor chop onion, cilantro, and garlic.  Then add tomatoes and the rest of the ingredients and process until smooth.   (Chop and mix by hand for a chunkier salsa.)


Serving Suggestions:  Use jalapeños and use seeds if you want a hotter salsa.  Great served with Turkey Taco Salad from my book on page 172!

HAPPY 4th!
