Salsa Fresca

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.

Salsa Fresca

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
olive oil
tortilla chips

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.

I make fresh salsa quite a lot, but have never thought of putting it in the little scoop bowls ... what a cute idea :)

I love your recipes! I just wanted to add that I like to spread a little goat cheese on a cracker and top it with fresh salsa. So yummy!

Another one of my favorite things to have sitting around the house for quick easy dipping while watching TV.
