Simple Salsa

This summer was one of many food challenges.  Perhaps the most exciting was the one that showed a tolerance to cooked tomatoes.  WOW.... we had forgotten what we were missing!  Even my angel was thrilled to taste her first tomato sauce, pizza, meatloaf and more.

With school in full swing and football season upon us, this is the perfect time for a quick and healthy snack like Simple Salsa. This recipe is kid-friendly so there are no veggie chunks, easy on the garlic and onion with a touch of sugar to cut the acid.

Simple Salsa

1 box Pomi chopped stewed tomatoes
1/2 onion (may add more to taste)
1/4 red bell pepper
2 t garlic powder (may use 1-2 real garlic pods, if tolerated)
1 T dried chopped cilantro (optional)
2 t salt (add more to taste)
1 t sugar
Juice of one lime (optional)

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender.
  2. Puree ingredients until smooth.
  3. Taste and adjust salt and onion.
  4. Place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes so flavors will blend.
  5. Serve with Bolder Olive Oil potato chips, sliced vegetables, hamburgers, or taco salad.
