Every year trying to find a gift for my clients is so hard for me. I, of COURSE, would love to buy them each a treadmill, a BlendTec, some new running shoes, and individual spa treatments; however, I would then be far past broke. Maybe one day clients? ;)
The past few years I have given them each a batch of my FAVORITE low fat Zucchini Cookies. They are still my absolute favorite cookie, but I wanted to shake it up this year. I decided to give them another favorite of mine that is SO healthy and delicious...Fresh Homemade Salsa.
Salsa is one of the best tools when it comes to eating healthy because it is so flavorful, and very low on calories. Most salsa's have 5-10 calories per serving. I love salsa on salad, over chicken, on a baked potato, or with oven baked tortilla chips. There is just nothing like fresh salsa. It's SO good! Plus it's red and green. What is more festive than that?
Fresh Homemade Salsa
1 (7 oz.) Herdez Salsa Casera
1 (4 oz.) can peeled chopped green chilis
juice of 1/2 lime
2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 large purple onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 large tomatoes, chopped
3 Tbs fresh cilantro
1 avocado, diced
Combine all of these ingredients together, chill, and serve! I put my onion and 1/2 the tomatoes in my mini food processor to speed things up.
This is a GREAT option for a healthy party appetizer or a healthy neighbor gift!
