A wonderful side for summer fun is Salsa, the Spanish word for sauce. Most of them are
low fat, cholesterol free, low in calories, vegetarian, gluten-free and diabetic safe. What's
not to love???
Salsa can spice up bland foods, add zest to hamburgers, accompany chips or steaks, and goes well with grilled fish.
( best when made no more than 4 hours ahead of meal)
1 cup diced mango
3/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste
2 diced Avocados
Combine first 8 ingredients in a bowl. Stir in salt and pepper to taste.
Gently fold diced avocado into mango mixture. Cover and chill 30 minutes
before serving.
( Goes well with grilled chicken)
2 cups green grapes, quartered
1 small cored and seeded minced Jalapeno
2 medium thinly sliced onion
1/2 diced green pepper
3 Tablespoons chopped fresh mint
2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
6 plum tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
Stir together all ingredients. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
(If you plan to make it ahead of time, stir in the salt just before
serving as this will keep the salsa from becoming too watery!)
PICO QUES0: cook 1 pound white American cheese slices and
3/4 cup whipping cream in a nonstick saucepan over low heat, stirring
often, 6 to 8 minutes or until cheese is melted and smooth. Stir
in 1 3/4 cups (above) Pico de Gallo and 1 to 2 Tbsp. hot sauce.
Serve immediately or keep warm over low heat, stirring often, for
up to 30 minutes.
