Salsa is a refreshing and tasty way to eat more vegetables. Plus, the garlic, onions and spices that are traditionally added have their own health benefits! Cilantro is a great source of phytonutrients, garlic is a powerful antioxidant and blood pressure regulator, and onions are rich in sulphur and folic acid. Salsa can be added on top of just about anything, from tacos, to salads to eggs. It lasts in the fridge, (if you don’t eat it all!) so have some on hand to spice up any dish.
- In a medium saute pan over medium heat add olive oil. Add tomatoes, onions and garlic. Saute for about 10 minutes, or until onions are soft.
