One of the fastest ways to throw money away is to buy pre-made condiments at the grocery store. While an average jar of salsa will cost an average of $3, an exceptional jar of specialty salsa can cost as much as $6 per jar.
Salsa is the easiest condiment to make. If you can dice fruits and vegetables and stir, you can make homemade salsa for a few cents per serving. Plus, you tailor the salsa to your taste. Like it hot? Throw in some habanero chilis. Like it mild? Use a red bell pepper instead.
We’ve created a nutritious mild salsa recipe that is packed with vitamins C and K, and manganese. Although all three nutrients are essential for the human body, vitamin C is especially needed in the diets of folks like you who exercise regularly. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that is required for the synthesis of collagen, which makes our blood vessels, skin, and tendons flexible. Vitamin C also synthesizes neurotransmitters in the brain. Because your body takes a beating at the cellular level when you exercise, vitamin C is an important antioxidant to consume each day.
This juicy summer salsa recipe is the perfect low-calorie topping for grilled fish or chicken. It is also a satisfying snack when paired with low-fat black bean dip or flaxseed crackers.
