Oh So Good Salsa 

Print Friendly 

Description:
This eay to make Salsa is a raw food recipe. Tomato salsa, if prepared using fresh ingredients, has several health benefits. Tomatoes contain large amounts of vitamin C and beta carotene. Because of the fresh ingredients, you can include tomato salsa as one of your suggested four vegetable servings per day. Just 1/4 cup of fresh tomato salsa counts as a single serving.

Ingredients:
-3/4 cup sweet onion
-1 cup fresh cilantro
-3 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
-3 tbsp raisins
-1 tbsp olive oil
-6 garlic cloves
-1 ½ tsp sea salt
-1/2 tsp cayenne (or 1 tsp finely chopped jalapeno)
-4 cups tomatoes
-1 cup red or yellow peppers


Directions:
You can either finely chop all ingredients by hand for a coarser texture or simply put all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until desired texture is achieved. Be careful not to over process this mixture as you will be drinking your salsa…lol

Now you simply can’t have Salsa without the crackers/chips to dip into it. A match made in heaven (in my mind anyway) see the Raw Corn Chip recipe.

Health in the News
Have you ever read or heard about new and amazing health research findings? Be careful. Don't immediately accept them as proven facts. A single research study does not always provide reliable evidence. Continue to look for more studies. Are most of them for or against the early report?
