Sunday Salsa

I’m not talking about dancing, I’m talking about the kind you eat. I made some salsa last night and thought I’d share the recipe with you.

Salsa, is so easy to make, you never need to buy salsa in a jar (its loaded with sodium) and you never need to use anything out of a can to make salsa (the lining of most cans, including tomatoes, contain a resin that leaches a toxic chemical, bisphenol-A (BPA), into food). You don’t even need to cook it. wpid-wp-1404699550881.jpeg

Did you know that 1/4 cup of salsa is equivalent to a one cup serving of vegetables? Salsa is high in vitamin A, vitamin B6, and vitamin C. Salsa provides a good source of iron, magnesium and potassium to help maintain normal blood pressure and capsaicin  (found in peppers) can help relieve indigestion and stomach pain.

Cilantro helps remove heavy metals and other toxins from the body while cumin helps with memory loss and the effects of stress on the body. All of these ingredients together provide high antioxidant levels and can help fight cancer.   wpid-wp-1404699550880.jpeg

If I had lime on hand, I would have included some lime juice in my salsa but it was fine without  it. Now if you notice the picture above, the serrano’s are just as big as the jalapeno’s. My husband likes hot salsa, so please adjust the recipe if you need to or de-seed the chile.

Sunday Salsa Ingredients

  • 3 serrano’s 
  • 2 jalapano’s
  • 4-6 tomaotes
