Salsa two ways- Healthy snacking Recipe | Tomato Salsa | Strawberry Salsa


Tomato Cucumber Salsa Recipe

Salsa a very famous Spanish term for sauce. There are umpteen number of variations of salsa today but here I am sharing you the famous Tomato Salsa along with my twist to salsa a Strawberry Salsa. This year I am trying my best to have healthy snacking and it all kick started with my earlier post of Roasted Malasa Makhana (Lotus Seeds). Everyone talks about including coloured food (veggies & fruits) into our daily diet. Sometimes it does become monotonous to simply chew them plain as a fruit/ veg. Making a salsa with veggies and fruits is one way to relish these colourful goodness. Salsa you may say is a dipping sauce how can be a snack? well chop the ingredients into bite sized bits and enjoy as a salad too. Usually Salsa is served along with Tortilla chips/ any crisps you can make a baked version of potato chips too for this salsa. 


Tomato Salsa is a little tangy & with a touch of spice, I have used veggies that are locally available. If you get hold of jalapeƱos and include in tomato salsa that would be great else no issues they anyways taste good. Strawberry Salsa is perfectly sweet yet tangy and somehow if I had to pick between the two I could jump for the Strawberry one. Next time around I plan to add in one for fruit to go with Strawberry. Since strawberries are in season now why not try this simple salsa for a quick snack?
