With summer in full swing, it’s the perfect time to enjoy a refreshing stroll in the great outdoors by visiting your local farmer’s market or making a run to the nearby produce stand.
There’s simply nothing like homemade treats made with the beautiful foods available to you during this time of the year! (And as an added bonus, produce that’s in season is easier on your budget too.)
Now perhaps you think that making healthy things from scratch is “just too difficult” or you’ve somehow convinced yourself that you just aren’t much of a “cook”. Maybe you have 4 children like we do and you feel like you just don’t have the time.
But we know that when you try this “recipe” you’ll be surprised just how simple getting a healthy snack on the table can truly be.
You can do this, and you’ll be so glad you did!
You’ll love this summertime snack because it’s simple to make, completely delicious, and totally guilt free.
You can do this, and you’ll be so glad that you did!
1. Grab a couple of ORGANIC TOMATOES, wash, and chop them to the size that you prefer for salsa.
2. Toss them into a bowl with some finely diced Vidalia or other mild ONION of choice.
3. Add a finely chopped JALAPENO (seeds removed), 1 clove minced GARLIC, HIMILAYAN PINK SALT, and FRESH BLACK PEPPER to taste.
4. Next add a splash of your favorite VINEGAR (we love balsamic), LEMON, OR fresh LIME juice for a bit of tangy flavor.
Optional: You may also add some finely chopped fresh CILANTRO if you enjoy the flavor. Most in our family like it and it does add some very nice nutritional benefits. Stir in some diced avocado or organic corn for
some additional FLA-VUH!
Now all that’s left to do is stir all the ingredients together and enjoy!
(If you prefer a less chunky salsa, you may pulse/blend it quickly in your food processor.)
As with SO many other healthy recipes, this recipe is not rocket science and that’s why there are no specific measurements listed here. Simply add the amounts you like to suit YOUR own taste. 😉
