Okay… how fresh does this Salsa Fresca look!?
This is a recipe I love to whip up in bulk for a variety of uses - overtop of taco bowls, in salads, as a topping over my eggs in the morning, or even as a dip on its own. Not only is it EXTREMELY low in calories, but it’s also crisp, tangy, and bursting with flavour! Plus, it’s filled with all those good-for-you ingredients, with NONE of the preservatives that other store-bought salsas contain.
And, did I mention it only takes about 15 minutes to make!? Just chop up some fresh grape tomatoes, onions, garlic and parsley and bam - you’ve got yourself a fresh and delicious, multi-purpose salsa that tastes incredible on just about anything. (Seriously - I can have multiple spoonfuls of this, just on its own, and be in complete heaven!)
A quick tip: You can store this Salsa Fresca in a storage container in the fridge for 2-3 days, but it's honestly soooooo delicious, that it usually goes WAY quicker than that!
