Miss Maisie Lou’s Market challenges you to test out your salsa-making skills on your family and friends! Salsa is not only a delicious treat but it is also good for you! A half-cup portion of salsa adds an extra serving of vegetable and fruit to your diet. Homemade salsa is healthier than store-bought because of it has lower sodium content. It is also very low in calories and cholesterol!
Remember to have an adult assist you with the chopping of the vegetables. Roma tomatoes are a little less juicy so they are recommended but you can use any type of tomato. This recipe will make just over two cups, but it will also depend how much extra stuff you want to add.
What You Need:
- 2 cups of chopped Roma tomatoes (about 4)
- 1 tablespoon cilantro
- 1 tablespoon red or white onion
- 2 tsp lime juice (or lemon)
- 1½ tsp garlic powder or 1 clove of fresh
- 1 tsp sugar
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Tortilla chips
- Optional Additions: parsley, bell peppers, mango, white or apple cider vinegar, green onions, hot sauce
Make it Your Way!
Salsa can be made many different ways. After you’ve made it once, you might do things a bit different next time. Place it in the fridge for a few hours before eating. Drain off the extra juice before serving! Eat it with Tortilla chips, on your omelette, or where ever you enjoy salsa. Delicious!
