When I was younger, I thought canned Chi Chi’s salsa was the cat’s meow. I thought that was the only way to have salsa – straight from a can. Boy, was I wrong. I’ve learned that the best salsa is really fresh salsa. Just a handful of fresh, basic ingredients, some spices, and you’ve got yourself one of the most nutrient rich snacks.
Plus, it’s Paleo! Not that it needs to be, but fresh salsa is approved by any diet.
Roma tomatoes are perfect for salsa. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. It’s because they aren’t too juicy and cut perfectly. Plus, they’re cheaper!! Go cheap produce.
All diced up, tossed in the bowl with a bit of spices, give it a toss and it’s cheaper and better than canned salsa!!
Smash up an avocado , toss into the fresh salsa, and you’ve got a great snack. I’m thinking I have a thing for Mexican food.. hmmmm I gotta start food traveling to other countries… where to next?
