Best Salsa Ever

April 01, 2014

Instead of buying jarred salsa, you can easily make your own with this recipe for Best Salsa Ever. In only 20 minutes, you’ll have amazing fresh salsa. This is perfect to make this weekend for the Final Four, for spring entertaining or for weeknights to jazz up your kid’s tacos and quesadillas. Tomatoes are one of the most healthy foods, high in antioxidants, support bone health, have anti cancer benefits and more. One serving of ripe, red tomatoes is a good source of Vitamins A, C, K, folate and potassium. Tomatoes are also low in sodium, saturated fat, cholesterol, and calories. Tomatoes also provide fiber, thiamin, niacin, vitamin B6, magnesium, phosphorus and copper. Enjoy and stay healthy!
