Dr. H’s End of Summer Strawberry Salsa

I received a lot of comments about my Guac recipe. So to see if I can continue a good trend, It is now time for my salsa recipe. The ingredient list is very low in processed carbohydrates, making it an excellent addition to your low carbohydrate diet.

Ingredient List

  • 3 tomatoes- I used a combination of Big Boys and Rosa tomatoes
  • 1/2 of a small white onion
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper
  • 2-4 small cloves of garlic- dependent upon your taste
  • 2 small strawberries
  • olive oil – about 1 tablespoon
  • cilantro – fresh if you have it
  • sea-salt to taste
  • white, black and red pepper to taste

O.K.

Here we go!!!!

First, get a clean cutting board, a serrated spoon such as a grapefruit spoon, and a few good knives.

Below is a picture of your ingredients.

Next step is dice the onion, garlic, strawberry and jalapeno. If you do not like hot and spicy, first remove tne seeds and the inner white lining of the jalapeno.

Cut the tomatoes in half, and remove the inner core with all the seeds with your serrated spoon, leaving the outer meaty part of the tomatoes.

Dice the tomatoes.

Mix all the above together into a bowl.

Add the oil and all other spices and mix thoroughly.

Now for the fun part.

Eating it !!!

But what can a low-carber eat with salsa?

Tortilla chips???
Nope!

On top of toast, like Bruschetta?

Nope again!!

My favorite is salsa over an omelette or baked fish, such as salmon or tilapia!

Enjoy!!!
