Cutting Board Salsa Recipe
I love salsa. I use every chance I can get to add a little flavour to my meals (it’s wonderful on eggs and couscous).
Most store bought salsas are low in calories, but it’s always better to have a homemade version of the sauce so that you really know what went into its preparation.
Here is a healthy salsa recipe that will add a little flavour to your favourite low fat tortillas or any other type of snack.
1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes
1 can (14 oz) tomato sauce
3 sticks of celery finely chopped on your cutting board
2 onions finely chopped
2 minced garlic bulbs
1 jalapeno pepper finely chopped (removed the seeds for a less potent flavour)
1/3 cup of white sugar
¼ cup of cider vinegar
¼ cup of lime juice
½ tsp pepper
½ tsp salt
1 ½ tsp of basil
Preheat the oil in a large pot that will be used to cook the salsa.
Wash and prepare the celery sticks and the garlic bulbs.
Slice up the onions and the celery on your cutting board, and chop the garlic.
Toss the onions, celery and garlic into the hot oil; be careful so that the oil doesn’t splash on you.
Let everything simmer for about 5 minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients to the mix and leave the pot uncovered to simmer for about 2 to 3 hours.
Once time’s up, allow the salsa to cool for and you’re ready to serve!
The Cutting Board Salsa can be enjoyed with nachos, toasted pita bread or anything else you can think of to dip in it.
