Fabulous Low Sodium Salsa

Submitted by: 7777BEV

Introduction

I love salsa but it seems all the store bought ones are so high in sodium that I wasn't able to enjoy much of them. I came up with this recipe that has all the flavor and ingredients that I love and is so low in sodium that I can have as much as I want. Delicious! This is a hot version. If you prefer a mild salsa, leave out the jalopeno pepper. I love salsa but it seems all the store bought ones are so high in sodium that I wasn't able to enjoy much of them.

    @CADMENTR First, you rate the recipe 0 stars because of missing serving size, but the serving size is listed at the end of the recipe. Learn how to read. Second, If you know the recipe makes 15 portions and you know it makes 3 3/4 cups then you know the portion size. Learn basic math. - 11/27/10
