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.

Body & Soul Wellness Fair - Vernon - March 2018


Wellness Tip
Fiber
There are two main types of fiber, soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber has been associated with lowering blood cholesterol. It is found in oat bran, beans and other legumes, psyllium, prunes, apples and pears. Insoluble fiber, found in fruits, vegetables, dried beans, wheat bran, seeds, popcorn, brown rice, and whole grain products, is typical of the course material we think of as roughage. It helps keep the bowels regular and may also help prevent certain types of cancers. Both types of fiber, when taken with plenty of water, aid in weight control and the regulation of blood pressure.
