Learn 2 Salsa!

More than not, I've been called the "Salsa Queen"! I wish it were for the lovely dance I perform, instead of the food I can eat!!! Salsa, of course. At least it's not loaded with empty calories. Well, that would depend on whose salsa you eat!

My homemade salsa is as tasty and healthy as the dance itself:


Go out to your garden and pick.....OK, OK, I'm stretching the imagination a bit.

  • "Find" organic Roma tomatoes. Six or more depending on how much you want to make. Diced.
  • A "part" of a jalapeno. Diced. Be careful how much you use!!!
  • 1/2 cup of diced sweet onion (your choice of brand) I like white onion.
  • 1t of freshly grated garlic.
  • 1t of Braggs Vinegar OR 1 T of freshly squeezed lemon or lime. You choose.
  • Dash of raw sugar OR splash of honey.
  • Dash of pepper.
  • Dash of salt.
  • Dash of cilantro. Some of you may want to add more, IF you love cilantro.
  • Dash of your fav salsa seasoning. I use Blend It Up. (http://www.blenditup.com/).
  • You may want to vary the amounts on all of these according to your palate.
  • Shake, Rattle, and Roll the above ingredients as you dance away to Salsa music!

NOTE: I tried that once, and it didn't work out too well!!!

Seriously, I use my Vita-Mix on low speed. Or I use my Swift-Chopper, I bought years ago at a kiosk in the mall. I think they sold on TV as well. I love it!!!! You have to put a little more work into it than with a blender, but it's a nice change of pace.

By the way, I didn't pay the $100 + for the Swift-Chopper I am now seeing on Internet sites. And, yes, I did pay mucho for the Vita-Mix, but it's been worth it! For better prices, purchase at Costco or the state fair.

Anyway, pull out those tasty organic chips from your local whole food section and enjoy your freshly made salsa. I wouldn't share if I were you. But that's just me!!!
