When in need of a quick snack that is a more on the nutritious side than not, I chop up a bowlful of Salsa Fresca. Juicy red tomatoes, crunchy kirby cucumbers, and diced, sharp onion are the main stars of this quick bite.
Served in one of my favorite inventions - the Tostito Scoop - which is a perfect petit bowl to hold a the ideal amount of this fresh goodness. I vary the recipe at times adding some chopped cilantro or julienned basil, but it stands well just on its own.
Add a Sunset Margarita for a happy, happy hour.
2 large ripe tomatoes, diced, 3 cups
1 kirby cucumber, diced (or substitute 1/2 of an English cucumber), 1 cup
1/2 medium onion, diced, 1 cup
In a bowl, combine tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions. Season with slat and pepper and about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Toss to coat. Serve with tortilla chips.
