Whip up a bowl of this delicious salsa to go with your
favorite fish and chicken dishes.
Mary Jean Christian,
UCI Health diabetes program coordinator, calls
this her “go-to” dish to add flavor to lean grilled meat
It’s also good for dressing up cottage cheese or as a dip with baked tortilla chips.
Make it as hot or mild as you like by adjusting the jalapeno peppers. For a smoky twist, substitute the jalapeno peppers with canned chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and omit the chopped mint leaves.
