Don't Condemn This Condiment!

Ketchup, mustard, and mayo are all condiments that get billing for condiments to add to your foods. However, I wanted to share my favorite homemade salsa recipe with all of you in this blog post as it offers a fresh, healthy alternative to these more traditional condiments. This particular salsa goes well with chicken burritos, burgers, enchiladas, a side with organic blue chips and baked fish, or you can add it to a taco. Another way to eat it is with your salads. With no fat and distinct taste to the palate, it can really spice up any salad in any season. It is loaded with antioxidants and can add a great deal of aesthetics with vibrant reds and greens to any dish. Perhaps the best aspect of the salsa is the fact that it is economically friendly as it can generally be prepared for $5.00-$10.00 with up to 20 servings being common.  

Here is the recipe:


2 cans stewed tomatoes
6 stalks green onions thinly sliced
2 serrano peppers finely chopped
½ green pepper finely chopped
Cilantro to taste—generally ½ cup provides a distinguished cilantro taste (chopped)
1 Lime


Put first 5 ingredients into food processor. Cut lime in half and squeeze juice onto mixture. Pulse or chop further until desired chunkiness achieved. Cover in a bowl with plastic wrap and leave it settle for at least 2 hours to let the mixture absorb flavors within itself.
