Replace your store-bought jar with 5 Minute Salsa! All made in a food processor, it’s super healthy with lots of fresh veggies and so easy! Always have it on hand for taco night and veggie-packed snacking!
Easy Meal Prep
A jar of 5 Minute Salsa is one of the best things to meal prep each week. Make if from scratch and you can pack it with nutrition. With lots of fresh veggies options, you can replace your store-bought jar, and actually call it a healthy snack!
A jar of 5 Minute Salsa in your fridge can go way beyond snacking! This weekly meal prep can make Taco Night easier. You can add salsa to Loaded Baked Potatoes for an easy weeknight dinner. Make easy lunches for the kids with Quesadillas in the Panini Press, just add cheese, salsa, and chicken or black beans. Or use it to make Southwest Salad Dressing, just mix equal parts salsa with ranch. In just 5 minutes, you can add lots of veggies to your week!
5 Minute Salsa really is as easy as it sounds. Just add all ingredients to the food processor, and pulse until you reach the amount of chunkiness you like! Fill it with all the standard salsa ingredients, like onion, garlic, tomato, lime and cilantro. But, you can easily add extra veggies to make it even healthier without altering the taste. Try any combination of spinach, bell pepper, carrot, zucchini, and extra poblano or jalapeno if you like it spicy.
You could also do a tropical salsa using the same method, adding pineapple or mango in place of the tomato. When my garden is bursting, I always find things to add to salsa, like a leaf of kale, spring onions or scallions, a chunk of zucchini or any type of pepper, and you can use fresh tomatoes when they are ready. This recipe is versatile, so your salsa can be a bit different each week. Always easy, always healthy, and always in just 5 minutes!
