Red Salsa

Skip the store-bought and pre-made salsa, and make your own homemade version. This recipe calls for canned tomatoes, which offer an added nutrition bonus! When tomatoes are heated during processing or canning, the powerful antioxidant, lycopene, becomes more bioavailable to our bodies, offering potentially more cancer protection and anti-inflammatory benefits.

  • 3 Garlic, clove
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro – packed, no stems

  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 2 cup Tomatoes, canned – diced
