Do the Salsa

Do the Salsa

In Spanish, salsa means "sauce," and it is a combination of chopped vegetables, fruits and herbs. Ranging from sweet to tangy to extra spicy, salsa is a healthy and delicious way to add the right amount of spiciness or sweetness to your dish.

Today, there are tons of variations and types of salsas. Here are some ideas, but feel free to get creative and add your favorite chopped fruits or vegetables.

  • Tomato salsa: Combine chopped plum tomatoes, onions, canned green chiles, cilantro and lime juice. Add red pepper flakes or hot sauce for more kick.
  • Pineapple or mango salsa: Combine chopped, fresh or canned pineapple or mango with cilantro, lime juice and minced garlic.
  • Black bean salsa: Combine canned, drained and rinsed black beans with chopped tomato and onion, cilantro, jalapeño and red wine vinegar.
